About A Matter of Balance

A Matter of Balance is an award-winning program designed to manage falls and increase activity levels in older adults.  Participants will learn to reduce fall risks, exercise to increase strength and balance, and view falls as controllable.  Anyone who is concerned about falls, has restricted their activities because of concerns about falling, or is interested in improving balance, flexibility and strength can benefit from A Matter of Balance.

A Matter of Balance workshops meet one day a week for two hours.
