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.
