A Matter of Balance: Managing Concerns About Falls

According to the u.S. National Library of Medicine, every year more than 1.6 million older u.S. adults go to emergency departments for fall-related injuries. This free, eight-part series will benefit mobile adults by helping reduce the fear of falling and increase the activity levels of older adults who have this concern. This program is open to those 60 and older who are concerned about falls, may have sustained a fall in the past, limit their activities because of concerns about falling and are interested in improving flexibility, balance and strength. A Matter of Balance uses a variety of activities such as group discussion, problemsolving, skill building, assertiveness training, videotapes, sharing practical solutions and exercise training to help seniors prevent falls. The class will take place in the 3rd Floor Conference Room of Monmouth Medical Center, Southern Campus, 600 River Avenue, Lakewood
