This is an evidence-based program that utilizes volunteer coaches to teach eight-two hour classes. Participants will learn to view falls and fear of falling as controllable, set realistic goals for increasing activity and promote exercise to increase strength and balance. A Matter of balance is for older adults who have concerns about falls, have sustained a fall in the past, restrict activities because of concerns about falling, are interested in improving flexibility, balance and strength.  CLICK LINK
