Fall prevention with A Matter of Balance

A Matter of Balance is an evidenced-based, award-winning program designed to help older adults reduce their fear of falling and increase their physical activity.

Our program consists of eight, two-hour sessions using group discussion, problem-solving strategies and physical activity. Participants learn how to:

  • Reduce fall hazards
  • Increase strength and balance
  • Improve your overall health and reduce risk of falling through increased physical activity

If you are interested in hosting an eight-week class, we will bring our program to you! Contact Karen Shipman, B.S.N., R.N. at (804) 828-6426 for more information.
