The Aroostook Agency on Aging in partnership with Healthy Living for ME will be offering a FREE workshop to help adults manage their chronic or long-term health conditions
Older adults can take control of their fear of falling. People who develop this fear often limit their activities, which can result in physical weakness, making the risk of falling even greater. A Matter of Balance is a program designed to reduce the fear of falling and increase activity levels among older adults. It includes 8 two-hour sessions for a group of 8-12 participants led by a trained facilitator.
The program benefits older adults who:
Are concerned about falls
Have sustained falls in the past
Restrict activities because of concerns about falling
Are interested in improving flexibility, balance and strength
