Matter of Balance

Have you fallen? Are you worried about falling? Join us and lea​rn how to prevent falls, discuss safety techniques to reduce concerns, and set goals for increasing activity. 

In this eight-week series, you'll learn how to reduce fall risk factors; create action planners addressing behavioral, environmental and physiological factors that affect your risk for falls; and participate in prompted open discussions surrounding falls.

This skill-building class includes exercise to improve strength, range of motion and flexibility. You'll learn how to get up from a fall, if one does occur, and what to do after a fall.

You'll also receive a textbook with tips and strategies, as well as personal action planners. A video will be shown of a fall demonstration. Three-quarters of the class will be discussion and learning, and one-quarter will incorporate exercises that build strength, flexibility, coordination and balance.
