A Matter of Balance is an award-winning group program that emphasizes practical strategies to reduce the fear of falling and increase activity levels. Participants meet in small groups in community settings once a week for eight weeks. They learn to view falls as controllable, set realistic goals, change their environment to reduce risk factors and exercise to increase strength and balance. Through group discussion, problem-solving activities, assertiveness training, exercise and skill building, participants are empowered to take simple steps to become more active without the fear of falling.
