WNC Fall Prevention Coalition will be hosting a free leader training for the evidence-based falls prevention workshop called “A Matter of Balance” on
Friday, February 24th
9:00 am to 4:00 pm
at the Henderson County Athletics and Activity Center
THE REGISTRATION DEADLINE IS NEXT WEEK!
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.
