    A Matter of Balance is an evidence-based program designed to reduce the fear of falling and increase activity levels among older adults.  The program acknowledges the risk of falling but emphasizes practical coping strategies to reduce this concern.  During class, you will learn to view falls and fear of falling as controllable and to set realistic goals for increasing activity.  You will also find ways to change your environment to reduce fall risk factors and will learn simple exercises to increase their strength and balance.

    What kind of topics will we cover?  We will talk about Mobility Issues, Balance Problems, Multiple Medications, Home Hazards and Deficits and Exercise!
