Exercising is the Best Option for seniors to Reduce Fall Risks
WINCHESTER, VA – Old age is risky to the life and limbs of seniors as it is a fact that from above the age of 65, an individual is more prone to fall accidents.

Westminster Canterbury residence offers seniors a variety of exercise programs with the intention of reducing accidents.
