Matter of Balance –Learn to Prevent Falls

Many people think falls are a normal part of aging. The truth is they’re not. Most falls can be prevented – and older adults have the power to reduce their risk. The fear of falling can result in turning down a chance to go out with family or friends; it can cause you to cut down on a favorite activity. A Matter of Balance: Managing Concerns about Falls is a program that can help you. Fear of falling can be just as dangerous as falling itself. People who develop this fear often limit their activities, which can result in severe physical weakness, making the risk of falling even greater. Many individuals also experience increased isolation and depression when they limit their interactions with family and friends. A Matter of Balance can help people improve their quality of life and remain independent. A Matter of Balance is designed to reduce the fear of falling and increase one’s activity level. Participants learn to set realistic goals to increase activity, change their environment to reduce fall risk factors, and learn simple exercises to increase strength and balance. This FREE program will be taught at South Iredell Senior Center every Tuesday and Wednesday from 10 a.m. to noon, Aug. 7 – 29, 2012.  The class will be taught be Mitzi McCurdy and Shea Musick. A workbook is provided and refreshments are served. Please call the Senior Center at 704-662-3337 to register. Space is limited and pre-registration is required by Aug. 3.

Communication is essential when it comes to being a Caregiver. Join us for this FREE caregiver’s training at South Iredell Senior Center, 202 N.

Mah Jongg

It’s not just a game! Mah Jongg is definitely a social outing where laughs and commiserations are shared.  In part, it’s the camaraderie, but there is something else, something unexplainable about the game, that bonds people. Some have summed up the version of the centuries old Chinese tile game as a, ‘rummy-like game played with tiles rather than cards.’  With unique rules and personal strategies one keeps to oneself. The goal is to match your “hand” with one of several different types of “hands” on a National Mah Jongg League card.  There are 152 tiles played in one game, each player starting with 13 tiles.  The player’s tile combination constantly changes because he or she either picks new tiles or, takes those discarded by another player.  To win, a player must match up 13 tiles and then pick a 14th tile to complete the “hand.” “Defensive playing,” where you try to figure out what someone else is playing and hold those tiles back is part of the game. And another interesting aspect is you don’t play with a partner.  If you make a wrong decision, it’s your wrong decision.  If you win, it’s all because of you! Once you learn the game, it becomes addictive. So if you’re looking for a fun, stimulating, social game, Mah Jongg is just the game for you. The group meets every Wednesday at 9:30 a.m. at South Iredell Senior Center. Come learn Mah Jongg according to the National Mah Jongg League rules, for the beginner or experienced player.
