A Matter of Balance

YCCHS offers A Matter of Balance to reduce the fear and risk of falling and increase activity among older adults. Classes are held once a week for 1 ½ hours for 8 weeks (9 weeks if offered virtually).

The Workshops combine discussion and simple exercises to provide a robust toolbox of steps one can take to prevent falling. Sessions are led by two trained facilitators for a small group of 8-12 participants.

The programs is designed for older adults that are:

  • Concerned about falls
  • Have fallen in the past
  • Limit activities due to concerns of falling
  • Interested in improving flexibility, balance, and strength
  • Age 60+, community-dwelling and able to problem solve

By participating in this program, individuals gain confidence by learning to see falls as preventable, making goals to increase physical activity, make changes to reduce the risk of falls at home, and do light exercises to increase strength and balance.
