Join us for an eight-session workshop to learn how you can improve strength, coordination, balance and lower your risk of falls. Light exercise is included. The goal of the Matter of Balance eight week workshop is to reduce the fear of falling cycle and increase activity levels. In the workshop, participants will learn to view falls and fear of falling as controllable, set goals for increasing activity, change their environment to reduce fall risk factors and promote exercise to increase strength and balance. Participants in this interactive workshop will engage in group discussion, problem-solving, skill building, assertiveness training and learn exercises to help increase flexibility, range of motion and strength.

Classes are eight consecutive weeks running for 2 hours. Classes start promptly at 12:30pm and end at 2:30pm. Feel free to bring water and a healthy snack if needed. People are strongly encouraged to eat a good lunch before class. The workshop will be cancelled if the minimum number of 8 participants is not registered prior to the start of the workshop. No new member will be admitted to the workshop after the second session.

Ascension Medical Center is in Howell, Michigan. It's located on Latson Rd. and Grand Oaks Drive. Please enter through main entrance and go to Conference Room #170.
