Fall Prevention

Home/Senior Health and Wellness/Fall Prevention

Improve Your Balance. Worry Less About Falls. Be More Active.

Falls can be absolutely devastating for older adults. And the fear of falling can be just as bad—keeping people sidelined on the couch, too worried  to join family and friends at restaurants, shopping trips or family events.

A Matter of Balance classes are designed just for people 60 and up. There is no cost. The classes help seniors:

  • Work on balance
  • Prevent falls
  • Reduce the fear of falling
  • Build confidence and be more active

Classes include practical tips and techniques, along with confidence-building and mobility exercises. Classes meet for two hours a week for eight weeks.

Classes Scheduled Continuously

Right now, we are offering our classes virtually. Our virtual classes are held using GoToMeeting, an online meeting service. You can participate using your Smartphone, computer or tablet.  We hope to soon go back to holding in-person classes as well. In-person classes are held in neighborhood settings like senior centers, community centers and religious centers throughout our six-county region. You can see a list of select upcoming classes on the right-hand side of this page. You can also  visit our events calendar for a full list of upcoming classes or call us at (833) 262-2200 or email wellnessprograms@AgeWays.org.

No Cost

There is no cost for the class, but donations are always appreciated. They help us bring the classes to more people.
