Senior Falls Prevention Coalition
Matter of Balance - This evidence based program helps older adults reduce their fear of falling by learning to view falls as controllable. It will also help set goals for increasing activity levels, encourage small changes to reduce fall risks at home, and ways to exercise to increase strength and balance. Contact us for information regarding upcoming classes.
Walk with Ease - This evidence based program is a six week program that can teach older adults how to safely make physical activity part of everyday life.
