Fall Prevention

Home/Senior Health and Wellness/Fall Prevention

Improve Your Balance. Worry Less About Falls. Be More Active.

Important update regarding the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak:

We have have temporarily halted our Health & Wellness classes. We are looking forward to continuing with classes when that becomes possible. For more information on AAA 1-B’s coronavirus response and resources and information to help older adults and family caregivers, visit our coronavirus updates page.

Falls can be absolutely devastating for older adults. And the fear of falling can be just as bad—keeping people sidelined on the couch afraid to join family and friends at restaurants, shopping trips or family events.

A Matter of Balance classes are designed just for people 60 and up. There is no cost. The classes help seniors:

  • Work on balance
  • Prevent falls
  • Reduce the fear of falling
  • Build confidence and be more active

Classes include practical tips and techniques, along with confidence-building and mobility exercises. Classes meet at community venues right in your neighborhood and are held in small group setting, so you can get to know the group, share ideas and work through challenges with each other. Classes meet for two hours a week for eight weeks.
