A Matter of Balance is an award-winning program designed for older adults to
manage falls and increase activity levels. Two trained coaches guide participants
through learning and activities that emphasize strategies to reduce fear of
falling and increase activity levels among older adults.
A Matter of Balance is an 8-week structured group intervention that emphasizes
practical strategies to reduce fear of falling and increase activity levels. Participants
learn to view falls and fear of falling as controllable, set realistic goals to
increase activity, change their environment to reduce fall risk factors, and exercise
to increase strength and balance. Participants show improved balance,
flexibility and strength while viewing falls as controllable.
Workshops are offered through the statewide Juniper network—a centralized
hub of community providers delivering evidence-based programs to help people
manage chronic health conditions, improve balance and prevent falls, and foster
well-being. Evidence-based programs are those that are developed and verified
by researchers.
