Winter Wellness: Staying Active and Preventing Falls

For almost five decades Southern Maine Agency on Aging (SMAA) has provided the resources, programs, and people to ensure that older adults and adults living with disabilities in Cumberland and York counties maintain their vitality well past the age of sixty. The two programs we want to highlight here - Agewell and Adult Day Program -are only a part of the many different ways we help older adults and care partners to stay healthy and safe. 

In the winter months, snow and ice are a regular part of our daily environment. Staying active, and taking extra steps to prevent a slip or fall is a key part of staying healthy this winter.

Falls are a leading cause of injury regardless of age, but as we get older, the impact that a fall has on our lives can be significant. Be we have good news - many falls can be prevented! By learning to identify and correct the factors that put you at risk for a fall, you can take control and greatly reduce your concerns, fear, and chances of experiencing a fall.

The Agewell programs offered through the Southern Maine Agency on Aging are nationally recognized, evidence-based workshops and wellness classes to help older adults maintain healthy, active lifestyles free from falls and falls-related injuries. To accommodate different situations, we offer both in-person and virtual classes.

Classes include A Matter of Balance, Tai Chi for Health and Balance, and wellness classes like Yoga for Healthy Aging, Gentle Exercise, and Qigong have more benefits besides improving your balance:  

  1. Stress Management – Learn valuable tools to support your mental and emotional health!
  2.  Physical Activity – Keeping your body active, strong, and flexible is more important than ever!
  3.  Social Engagement – Maintaining connections with others is so important to your wellbeing and health!

Don’t wait for the winter to be over to get active! Start in January with our Tai Chi, A Matter of Balance, and drop-in virtual wellness classes.

Current Office Operations

Although we are trying to resume in-person meetings with clients, we still encourage clients to consider meeting with us remotely, particularly if they have health concerns. Our office staff has been vaccinated, and we practice social distancing, but remote meeting through the use of technology like Zoom is safe and convenient, so we continue to encourage its use.
