Matter of Balance


M, Jun 7-Aug 2 | 2:30pm$5M/$7.50NM

Chances are you know someone who has fallen or who is afraid of falling. A Matter of Balance is a proven program designed to help people manage concerns about falls and increase physical activity. Conducted in 8 week sessions, the program uses group discussion, problem-solving strategies, videos, and gentle physical exercise. We will learn positive coping methods to reduce the fear of falling and remain active and independent.  The fee covers a snack each week. This program will be held outdoors on the NSC patio if weather permits.
