Many older adults experience a fear of falling. People who develop this fear often limit their activities, which can result in physical weakness, making the risk of falling even greater. A Matter of Balance is an award-winning program designed to reduce the fear of falling, increase confidence and improve activity levels among older adults.

A Matter of Balance is offered as an eight-week series with two-hour sessions held weekly, or a four-week series with two-hour sessions twice a week. Workshops are offered in English and Spanish.

A Matter of Balance is most appropriate for people who:

  • Are 60 or older
  • Concerned about falls
  • Interested in improving flexibility, balance, and strength

Participants learn how to:

  • View falls as controllable
  • Set goals for increasing activity
  • Make changes to reduce their fall risk at home
  • Exercise to increase strength and balance
