What is A Matter of Balance?
A Matter of Balance 
is a community class specifically designed to reduce fear of falling, stop the fear of falling cycle, and improve activity levels among community-dwelling older adults. The program includes eight two-hour classes presented by trained coaches using an extensively detailed training manual and two instructional videos. A Matter of Balance uses practical coping strategies to reduce fear of falling and to diminish the risk of falling. It includes group discussions, mutual problem solving, exercises to improve strength, coordination and balance, and home safety evaluation. This structured group intervention works best with 10-12 participants. 
97% of older adults taking ​A Matter of Balance​ are more comfortable talking about fear of falling and increasing their activity. Research outcomes include improved falls management and exercise levels up to twelve months after taking the class.
