Fear of falling can be just as dangerous as falling itself. People who develop this fear often limit their activities, which can result in severe physical weakness, making the risk of falling even greater. The Matter of Balance 8-session workshop can help people improve their quality of life and remain independent. Participants learn to set realistic goals to increase activity, change their environment to reduce fall risk factors, and learn simple exercises to increase strength and balance. The Center and UVa Health System are partnering to bring you this evidence-based program. Space is limited; register online or at the Welcome Desk. No new participants can be accepted after the second session. Open to the community; $20 (scholarships available)Open to all.
