A Matter Of Balance: Managing Concerns About Falling
Have you turned down a chance to go out with family and friends or have you quit doing a favorite activity because you were afraid of falling?
Many older adults experience a fear of falling and often restrict their activities, which can lead to physical weakness, making the risk of falling even greater.
A MATTER OF BALANCE is an award-winning program designed to reduce the fear of falling and increase activity levels among older adults.
Classes Help Participants Learn To:
- view falls and fear of falling as controllable
- set realistic goals for increasing activity
- change their environment to reduce fall risks at home exercise to increase strength and balance
