About

Do you have an authentic interest in working with and helping seniors? Are you comfortable speaking to and leading discussion in small groups? Being a certified coach for Sonoma County’s A Matter of Balance: Managing Concerns About Falls (MOB) program may be just the volunteer opportunity you’re looking for.

MOB incorporates simple chair exercise and addresses psychological, lifestyle and environmental challenges to balance through group discussion and problem-solving activities. Each program is eight sessions, usually held weekly or twice a week. Each class is two hours long.

Classes are led by volunteer lay coaches who work in teams of two and are expected to lead two MOB programs within a year of their training. The next training is Wed., March 29 8 am-1 pm and Thurs., March 30, 8 am - noon at the county offices on Westwind Blvd, Santa Rosa (must attend both days).

This nationally recognized, award-winning program has helped hundreds of Sonoma County seniors to enjoy healthier, more active, safer and better balanced lives.
