In this program’s eight classes, they’ll work with an instructor and other older adults to: 1) Learn about fall prevention strategies 2) Develop and follow a personal fall prevention plan 3) Learn exercises to improve their balance and increase their activity levels 4) Make or support changes in their daily lives that can reduce their fear of falling.
