Fear of Falling? Matter of Balance Class Starting January 15th

January 1, 2019

Wilson, MIJanuary 1, 2019 – Have you turned down a chance to go out with family or friends because you were concerned about falling? Have you cut down on a favorite activity because you might fall? If so, A Matter of Balance: Managing Concerns About Falls is a program for you.

Fear of falling can be just as dangerous as falling itself. People who develop this fear often limit their activities, which can result in severe physical weakness, making the risk of falling even greater. Many older adults also experience increased isolation and depression when they limit their interactions with family and friends. A Matter of Balance can help people improve their quality of life and remain independent.
A Matter of Balance is designed to reduce the fear of falling and increase activity levels among older adults. Participants learn to set realistic goals to increase activity, change their environment to reduce fall risk factors, and learn simple exercises to increase strength and balance.

An eight session Matter of Balance class is scheduled to begin on Tuesday, beginning on January 15th, from 1:00 pm-3:00 pm (EDT). The class will be held at the Hannahville Elders Complex #1, located on N15145 Ridgeview Road Wilson, MI 49896. There is no cost to attend, pre-registration is required. Please call Amanda at 906-723-2546 to register or for more information. Program brought to you by UPCAP and the Hannahville Indian Community. For more information, visit www.upcap.org
