The Keene Family YMCA has partnered with Bentley Commons to bring Moving for Better Balance®, a fall prevention program for seniors, to the Keene community. Falls are NOT a normal part of aging, and you CAN reduce your risk of a fall!

You can take steps now to reduce your risk of a fall and maintain an active and independent lifestyle!
The 12 week program, which begins Feb 17th, will be conducted by certified Y staff at the Bentley Commons assisted living community on Water Street in Keene. Participants will meet Wednesday and Friday from 10:45-11:45am. The cost of the program is $125 for the general public; $75 for Y members and Bentley Commons residents.
