Fall Prevention Classes at the Dance Palace Wednesdays from Jan 24-Mar 24

WMSS, with EAH and Marin General Hospital is  sponsoring  A Matter of Balance, Falls Prevention class series at the chapel of the Dance Palace on Wednesdays from Jan 24-Mar 24 from 1-3 pm. If you have any clients (or seniors in the community) that you think would be able to attend, and benefit from them, please let me know and we can enroll them for free, (if they’re willing).

These classes are primarily discussion groups, with some low intensity  exercise practices. They are intended to dispell the fear of falling that limits many seniors activities, teach easily performed strength and balance exercises, and provide a social support system around the theme of promoting falls prevention.

There are also some spaces for people who want to become coaches, although those are limited and may already be filled.  Attendees should be cognitively and socially functional,  not extremely frail and have some risk factors or have mentioned fear of falling as a limiting factor.

If you cannot attend this class, and would like more information about balance, the danger of falls and fall prevention, please contact us. (415) 663-8148

Lights of Life Celebrations

Lights of Life has been a joyous celebration for 17 years at West Marin Senior Services, honoring the memories, dreams and spirits of those who have passed on. We welcome donations in memory of our loved ones to support West Marin Senior Services.

This year we will have two celebrations:

On Friday, Dec 1st from 6:30 – 7:00 p.m. we invite the community to a brief candle lighting ceremony across the street from the Wells Fargo Bank in Point Reyes Station. After a few holiday songs from Harmony Grisman and the Heart Song Circle, and a very brief reading, we will blow out our candles, and the tree will magically light with lovely decorations.

On Saturday, Dec. 2nd from 4:30 – 5:00 p.m. we invite the Valley community to join us at the San Geronimo Community Center for the Celebration of Life with Scott Grace invoking memories in song. Donations made the day of this event will be shared with the Community Center.
