-You are taking a diuretic, blood pressure medication, and/or medications with side effects including but not limited to dizziness, hypoglycemia, and/or sleepiness.

Class Description: The purpose of this class is to work on your balance, guided by a qualified healthcare provider and movement specialist. This class will teach you exercises that you can safely do on your own in order to reduce your fall risk. There are options in this class to further challenge the exercises, but they are not required, especially if you are unsure.
Ages: 65 and older
Preferred environment: You will need to be in a fairly quiet environment with enough space to move around. Make sure you are near a wall or other stable surface for balance, if needed. Someone else needs to be home with you.
Equipment:
Wall, couch, counter top, or other sturdy surface for you to catch your balance if needed.
Dining room or kitchen chair
Workout shoes (optional)
Foam pad, couch cushion, or other unstable surface
Light theraband, if available
Time: 30-45 minutes
About your instructor:
Tom Christ, Stephanie Lievense, and Dhara Shah are Doctors of Physical Therapy with experience in treating all ages, including the geriatric population and those with impaired gait and balance.
