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.
Pre-registration is required. For more information, contact Sherry Young at 866-413-5337 (866-41-ELDER) or firstname.lastname@example.org. Before starting any exercise program, always check with your physician.
Funding for this program is provided by a grant for disease prevention and health promotion under the 2018 Older Americans Act, Title IIID, through the Florida Department of Elder Affairs.
