Matter of Balance

Is an eight week program developed by MaineHealth’s Partnership for Healthy Aging and adapted by Boston University where seniors address:  1) their concerns about falling, 2) manage safety concerns to reduce fall risks at home, 3) examine their attitudes about falling, 4) prevent falls through a series of exercises that increase strength & improve balance, 5) set goals for increased activity and 6) help seniors view falls as controllable.  Classes are offered twice each year.  Call BJ at 356-3585 to register for the next available class.

This program funded in part with funds through the Older Americans Act, Aging and Adult Services Agency of the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services and Region 9 Area Agency on Aging.
