Managing Concerns About Falls
Have you turned down a chance to go out with family or friends because you were concerned about falling? Have you cut down on a favorite activity because you might fall? If so, A Matter of Balance: Managing Concerns About Falls is a program for you.
Fear of falling can be just as dangerous as falling itself. People who develop this fear often limit their activities, which can result in severe physical weakness, making the risk of falling even greater. A Matter of Balance can help people improve their quality of life and remain independent.
A Matter of Balance is designed to reduce the fear of falling and increase activity levels among older adults. Participants learn to set realistic goals to increase activity, change their environment to reduce fall risk factors, and learn simple exercises to increase strength and balance.
The Healthy Aging Association is offering A Matter of Balance: Managing Concerns About Falls on starting August 3, 2017 at Mancini Hall Senior Center located at 718 Tuolumne Blvd. Modesto. The Program cost is free. The session will run for only 8 weeks on Thursdays from 1:00-3:00 pm. A workbook is provided and refreshments are served.
