A Matter of Balance Program is an 8-session structured group intervention that strategizes to reduce fear of falling and increase activity levels. Participants learn to view falls and fear of falling as controllable, set realistic goals to increase activity, change their environment to reduce fall risk factors, and exercise to increase strength and balance. This program consists of group discussion; strength, balance, & flexibility exercise during session 3-8, and a Guest Health Care Professional (GHP) visit to demonstrate safe techniques for getting down to the ground and getting up from a fall. Sessions are in person, 2 hours twice a week for 4 weeks at La Mirada Activity Center. Registration is required. Sign up for this workshop below and complete a registration survey in class. Minimum required: 10 participants. Must join either Session 1 or 2 to continue. No new participants after session 2.
