The fear of losing your balance and falling can lead you to restrict activities, especially if you have experienced a fall in the past. Improving your balance, strength and flexibility can get you back on the fast track.

This program –– broken into eight two-hour sessions –– offers practical coping strategies to reduce your risk and fear of falling. Small groups are led by trained facilitators who help participants view falls and the fear of falling as controllable; set realistic goals for increasing activity; and change their environment to reduce the risk of falls. Simple exercises to increase strength and balance are also highlighted.
