Matter of Balance

A Matter of Balance is a falls prevention program for adults age 60 and older who are concerned about falls, or have sustained a fall in the past. This is accomplished through group discussion, problem-solving strategies and increasing the physical activity levels of those who have concerns about falls.

The program consists of eight two-hour sessions held twice per week for four weeks. The A Matter of Balance program is conducted at various locations throughout the Coastal Bend region.

  • are you worried about falls?
  • have you had a fall in the past?
  • do you limit activities because of concerns about falling?
  • are you interested in better flexibility, balance and strength?

If you answered yes, classes can help you learn to:

  • control falls and fear of falling
  • increase your physical activity
  • reduce fall hazards in your home
  • build strength, balance, and flexibility

For information about classes, contact the Area Agency on Aging of the Coastal Bend.
