Matter of Balance

Categories: Wellness and Enrichment

Fear of falling can keep Older Adults from being as active as they would like to be, which reduces muscle strength and can actuallyincrease the risk of falls. Add to that the inevitable feelings of isolation and possible depression due to “being stuck in the house” and a Older adult’s quality of life suffers. Matter of Balance is an eight-week (a two-hour session per week) program focusing on preventing falls. The combination of classroom instructions and discussions, along with exercises to be repeated at home, will improve balance and confidence of participants. This eight-week education and exercise class is designed to help you:

  • View falls and fear of falling as controllable
  • Set realistic goals for increasing activity
  • Change your environment to reduce fall risk factors
  • Promote exercise to increase strength and balance
