Group of seniors exercising in a circle. Text reads: Juniper. Your Health. Your Community. A Matter of Balance. The fear of falling is as dangerous as falling itself as people limit activities, resulting in physical weakness, making the risk of falling even greater.

Matter of Balance

Sign up today for an 8 week course designed to help older adults reduce their fear of falling!

Fear of falling can be just as dangerous as falling itself. People who have this fear often limit their activities, which can result in severe 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 goals to increase activity, change their environment to reduce fall risk factors, and learn simple exercises to increase strength and balance.

When: 8 week course meeting every Tuesday starting September 17 from 1pm to 3pm

Where: City View Center: 463 Maria Avenue, Saint Paul, MN 55106.
