Please join Matter of Balance Coaches Sandy Perry and Jane Lasselle in this life changing class!

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. It includes 8 two-hour sessions for a small group of 8-12 participants led by a trained facilitator. This nationally recognized program was developed at the Roybal Center at Boston University.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND?

The program is designed to benefit older adults who:

* Are concerned about falls

* Have sustained falls in the past

* Restrict activities because of concerns about falling

* Are interested in improving flexibility, balance and strength

* Are age 60 or older, community-dwelling and able to problem solve
