“A Matter of Balance” is a falls prevention program that acknowledges the risk of falling, but emphasizes practical coping strategies to reduce this concern. Trained facilitators conduct eight 2-hour sessions designed for groups of 10-12 participants. During the class, participants learn to view falls and fear of falling as controllable, and set realistic goals for increasing activity. They also find ways to change the environment to reduce fall risk factors and learn simple exercises to increase strength and balance.
