August 2014

Many older adults experience concerns about falling and restrict their activities to prevent falls. 

 

Matter of Balance is an award-winning program designed to manage falls and increase activity levels.  The Matter of Balance program emphasizes practical strategies to manage falls. 

 

Class participants will learn to view falls as controllable, set goals for increasing activity, make changes to reduce fall risks at home, and exercise to increase strength and balance. 

 

Who should attend?  Anyone concerned about falls; anyone interested in improving balance, flexibility and strength; anyone who has fallen in the past; anyone who has restricted activities because of falling concerns.

 

Matter of Balance consists of eight program classes.  Classes will begin August 19 at the Ohio District 5 Area Agency on Aging, Inc. at Hawkins Corner, 2131 Park Avenue West, Suite 300, Ontario, Ohio from 9:30 a.m.-11:30 a.m.   Registration is required:  call Bev at 419-525-6759 for more information and to register.
