Fairfax County's Independent Living Project invites older adults who wish to stay in their homes as they grow older to a free, upbeat program designed to make that dream a reality. The program consists of a 6-week exercise program and a series of workshops on fall prevention, nutrition, food safety, medication management, getting the most out of your next medical appointment and brain fitness.
The exercise program focuses on improving balance and strength in order to avoid falls. In addition, participants can elect an in-home risk assessment.
The program is scheduled at two locations in Springfield:
Thursdays, April 16-May 21, 11 a.m.-12:55 p.m.
Grace Presbyterian Church
7434 Bath Street, Springfield
Mondays, April 20-June 1, 12:45-2:50 p.m. (no class May 25)
Messiah United Methodist Church
6215 Rolling Road, Springfield
