Name: Matter of Balance Fall Prevention Workshops
A Matter of Balance is an award-winning evidence-based program designed to manage falls and increase activity levels for older adults. The program emphasizes practical strategies to manage falls. These strategies include viewing falls as controllable, setting goals for increasing activity, making changes to reduce fall risk at home, and to increase strength and balance through exercises. Exercises are introduced in the third session and a physical therapist will present for one hour during the workshop. Anyone concerned about falls or who has fallen in the past should attend the workshops. It is also ideal for older adults interested in improving balance, flexibility, and strength or anyone that has restricted activities because of falling concerns.

The workshop is free thanks to funding provided by the Mason Area Community Fund. Pre-registration is required by calling Christine Histed at 517-887-1450.
