Description:    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 a program designed to reduce the fear of falling and increase activity levels among older adults.

This course will be offered for a total of 8 sessions. Participants are encouraged to attend at least 5 of the sessions in order to experience the benefits.
