Many older adults experience a fear of falling. People who develop this fear often limit their activities, which can result in physical weakness, making the risk of falling even greater. A Matter of Balance is a program designed to reduce the fear of falling and increase activity levels among older adults.
A Matter of Balance includes eight two-hour sessions for a small group led by a trained facilitator. This nationally recognized program was developed at the Roybal Center at Boston University.
During the class, participants learn to:
• View falls as controllable • Make changes to reduce fall risk at home
• Set goals for increasing activity • Exercise to increase strength and balance
This class is held Tuesdays and Wednesdays 1:30pm – 3:30pm May 30th 2017 through June 21st 2017
No cost to attend.
