A Matter of Balance - August 2022 Series
Do you have concerns about falling? Many older adults limit their activities out of fear of falling, which can result in physical weakness, making the risk of falling even greater. A Matter of Balance is an award-winning program designed to manage falls and increase activity levels among older adults.
Beginning August 2, classes will be offered twice a week (every Tuesday and Thursday) for 4 weeks at Kaunoa Senior Center and will be taught by a Maui Health Trauma Program team member who has been specially certified to teach this nationally-recognized course.
During this four-week “Matter of Balance” course, participants will learn ways to reduce their risk for falls not only at home but also out in the community, as well as the best and safest way to get up from a fall. This course will also cover ways to stay active and some simple exercises to improve balance.
