A Matter of Balance

Description

A Matter of Balance is designed to help older adults overcome the fear of falling and increase their activity levels. All too often, a fear of falling prompts older adults to restrict their activities — and may become a self-fulfilling prophecy.
A Matter of Balance can empower them to take steps to reduce their chances of a fall. In this program's eight classes, they’ll work with an instructor and other older adults to:
Learn about fall prevention strategies
Develop and follow a personal fall prevention plan
Learn exercises to improve their balance and increase their activity levels
Make or support changes in their daily lives that can reduce their fear of falling
Cost: Free
