A Matter of Balance: Managing Concerns about Falls
Many seniors experience fear of falling and restrict their activities. A Matter of Balance emphasizes practical strategies to reduce this fear and increase physical activity levels. A Matter of Balance includes eight two-hour sessions for a small group led by a trained facilitator. This program was developed at the Roybal Center at Boston University and has been nationally recognized.
Other fall prevention efforts offered by the Center include home risk assessments and home modifications to reduce the risk of falls.
