According to the U.S. National Library of Medicine, every year more than
1.6 million older U.S. adults go to emergency departments for fall-related
injuries. This free, eight-part series will benefit mobile adults by helping
reduce the fear of falling and increase the activity levels of older adults
who have this concern.
The program is open to those age 60 and older who are concerned about falls,
may have sustained a fall in the past, limit their activities because
of concerns about falling or are interested in improving flexibility,
balance and strength.
A Matter of Balance uses a variety of activities such as group discussion, problem-solving,
skill building, assertiveness training, videotapes, sharing practical
solutions and exercise training to help seniors prevent falls.
