A Matter of Balance: Managing Concerns About Falls
Many people over the age of 50 experience concerns about falling and restrict their activities. This class is an evidence-based approach to manage falls effectively and increase physical activity levels in older adults. Participants will learn to:
- View falls as controllable and preventable
- Set personal goals for increasing physical activity
- Make environmental and other changes to reduce one’s fall risk
- Exercise safely to increase strength and balance
If you are interested in improving your balance, flexibility, and strength, or are concerned about falls or have fallen in the past, this program is for you. Sessions are two hours with exercises being done for approximately one hour beginning the third week.
