This program includes eight two hour sessions for a small group led by two trained facilitators. This is a nationally recognized program that was developed at the Royal Center at Boston University.

During the class, participants learn to: 1) View falls as controllable, 2) set goals for increasing activity, 3) make changes to reduce fall risk at home, and 4) exercise to increase strength and balance.

This class is sponsored by the Garden of Eden Senior Center.
