A Matter of Balance is an 8 session, award-winning program approved by the AoA, Administration on Aging, and NCOA, National Council on the Aging.

This program acknowledges the risk of falling but emphasizes practical coping strategies to reduce this fear.  They include: promoting a view of falls and fear of falling as controllable, setting realistic goals for increasing activity, changing the environment to reduce fall risk factors, and promoting exercise to increase strength and balance.

The program is designed to benefit community-dwelling older adults who: are concerned about falls, have sustained a fall in the past, restrict activities because of concerns about falling, are interested in improving flexibility, balance and strength, and are age 60 or older, ambulatory and able to problem-solve.
