Humboldt DHHS creates fitness video aimed at reducing dangerous falls

EUREKA, CA. – The Humboldt County Department of Health and Human Services has created a fitness program DVD for seniors aimed at reducing dangerous falls.

DHHS Public Heath’s Older Adults Falls Prevention Program is now offering their DVD “Tai Chi for Balance,” for free.

They say unintentional falls are a major cause of loss of independence and average in $35,000 in medical bills, but they claim Tai Chi can offer a way to improve strength and balance.

Free copies of the training video are available now at the Community Wellness Center in Eureka, as well as at the Humboldt County Public Library, and the Humboldt State University Library.
