“A Matter of Balance™” is a Fall Prevention program with an exercise component. It is available to people who have fallen or have a fear of falling. This free workshop emphasizes practical strategies to manage falls. It also teaches exercises that increase muscle strength, flexibility, and balance.
Classes meet 2 hours per week for 8 weeks with two trained facilitators in a group setting (10-14 participants). The workshop teaches participants to view falls as controllable, set goals for increasing activity, and make changes to reduce fall risks at home. It is sponsored by the Area Agency on Aging of the Heart of Texas and hosted South Waco Library.
The Area Agency on Aging has a FREE workshop starting soon!
