Program Type:Health & Wellness
A Matter of Balance can reduce the fear of falling and increase the activity levels of adults who have concerns about falling. Individuals who develop this concern often limit their activities, which can result in physical weakness, making the risk of falling even greater.
A Matter of Balance includes eight two hour sessions led by a trained facilitator.
During this class, individuals learn to:
Exercise to increase strength and balance
Make changes to reduce fall risk at home
Set goals for increasing activity levels
View falls as controllable
The workshop is sponsored by the Oklahoma Healthy Aging Initiative (OHAI).
