Great River Health Fitness offers A Matter of Balance, an eight-week program
that helps older adults reduce the fear of falling and increase activity
levels. A new session will begin at 10 a.m. Tuesday, Oct. 17.
A Matter of Balance is a nationally recognized program developed at Boston
University. Participants learn to view falls as controllable, set goals
for increasing activity, make changes to reduce fall risks at home, and
exercise to increase strength and balance.
The program fee is $25 for Great River Health Fitness members and $40 for
nonmembers. It includes classes, educational materials and snacks.
