Matter of Balance (MOB) is an evidence-based falls management program that acknowledges the risk of falling but emphasizes practical coping strategies to reduce the fear.  The workshop is conducted over eight sessions, meeting twice weekly for two hours per session.

Two coaches, Gayla MacMillan & Linda Carlsen, will lead the program and provide guidance with the goal of reducing the fear of falling, stop the fear of falling cycle and increase activity levels among community-dwelling older adults.  Workshop includes a discussion and exercise component in each session.  The group format provides the opportunity for people with a common problem to learn from and help each other deal with this fear of falling.  Class is limited to 12 participants.
