Matter of Balance Workshop 1 of 8

July 10 at 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

 

The goal of Matter of Balance (MOB) is to reduce fear of falling, stop the fear of falling cycle, and increase activity levels among community-dwelling older adults.

A Matter of Balance acknowledges the risk of falling but emphasizes practical coping strategies to reduce this fear. These 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
  • Promoting exercise to increase strength and balance.

This workshop is conducted over eight sessions, meeting weekly or twice weekly for two hours per session. Meeting dates are Mondays and Wednesdays including: July 10, 12, 17, 19, 24, 26, 31, and August 2.  Registration is required by calling Council on Aging: 704-292-1797.
