Description:    A Matter of Balance can help reduce the fear of falling and increase the activity of older adults who have concerns about falling. Each class is broken up into 2 sections. The first half of class is spent doing low impact exercises either in a chair or behind one to help improve strength and balance. The second half of class is used to discuss and learn how to prevent falls and make our environments safer. 98% of participants would recommend the program to others and 97% are more comfortable talking about fears of falling.
