Many older adults experience concerns about falling & restrict their activities. Falls are preventable! A MATTER OF BALANCE program is a FREE Evidence Based Program for 60+ designed to reduce falls & increase activity levels. The program consists of 2 hour classes, twice a week (Mondays & Wednesdays) for 4 weeks.
