A Matter Of Balance Classes

A Matter of Balance

A Matter of Balance is an award-winning program designed to manage falls and increase activity levels, since many older adults experience concerns about falling and restrict their activities. 


This program is designed to benefit community-dwelling older adults who are concerned about falls, have sustained a fall in the past and/or restricted activities because of concerns about falling and for those who are interested in improving flexibility, balance and strength, and are age 60 or older, ambulatory and able to problem solve.

The Matter of Balance class is a 8 week, two-hour session taught by trained volunteer coaches.

The sessions consist of  group discussion, problem-solving, skill building, assertiveness training, sharing practical solutions, videotapes, and exercise training to help participants learn about ways to view falls and control their fear of falling, to set realistic goals for increasing activity, to change their environment to reduce fall risk factors, and to promote exercise to increase strength and balance.
