Matter of Balance
December 13, 2023
11:30 AM - 1:30 PM
A Matter of Balance is designed to reduce fear of falling and increase activity levels among older adults who manifest this concern.
Studies indicate that up to half of community dwelling older adults experience fear of falling, and that many respond to this concern by curtailing activity. 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.
