The Genesis Fall Prevention Program helps older adults improve their level of strength and flexibility so
they can better perform daily tasks while limiting the risk of falling.
The next eight-week program will begin Feb. 21. The class will be 1-2 p.m. Tuesdays and Fridays at Genesis
Medical Park, 2535 Maplecrest Road, in Bettendorf. Functional fitness assessment tests given to participants before and after the 16 sessions have shown increases in agility, coordination, strength, and standing balance.
Cost of the eight-week program will be $100. Register by calling certified therapeutic recreation specialists Diane Dittmer Johnson or Jennifer Hovey at (563) 421-1440.
