When:  Monday, Oct. 16, 2017, 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.

A Matter of Balance is an eight week session designed to reduce fear of falling and increase activity levels among older adults who are concerned about falling.

Being inactive results in loss of muscle strength and balance. It can also compromise social interaction and increase the risk for isolation, depression and anxiety. Fear of falling can actually contribute to falling. Join two trained facilitators to overcome the fear of falling, set realistic goals for increasing activity, and learn simple exercises to increase strength and balance.

Learn about the importance of exercise and work to overcome barriers as we get older. Practice exercises that promote strength and balance
