A Matter of Balance: Managing Concerns About Falls
A Matter of Balance is a structured group intervention that utilizes a variety of activities to address physical, social and cognitive factors affecting fear of falling and to teach fall prevention strategies. The activities include group discussion, problem-solving, skill building, assertiveness training, videotapes, sharing practical solutions and exercise training. Each of the eight sessions is two hours in length, including a break for light refreshments. Early sessions focus on changing attitudes and self-efficacy before attempting changes in actual behavior. The exercise component, which begins in the third session, takes about 30 minutes of the session to complete.
Dates: 8 sessions (1 x week) – Tuesdays – January 8 through February 26, 2019
Time: 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm
(We will cancel for bad weather based on Transylvania County School closures.)
