A Matter of Balance is designed to help adults overcome the fear of falling and increase their activity levels. All too often, a fear of falling prompts older adults to restrict their activities — and may become a self-fulfilling prophecy. A Matter of Balance can empower them to take steps to reduce their chances of a fall. In this program's eight classes, they’ll work with an instructor and other older adults to:

Learn about fall prevention strategies
Develop and follow a personal fall prevention plan
Learn exercises to improve their balance and increase their activity levels
Make or support changes in their daily lives that can reduce their fear of falling
