Matter of Balance Coach
4 people are interested
A Matter of Balance is a proven program designed to help older people manage concerns about falls and increase physical activity. Volunteer coaches complete 8 hours of training and then lead small groups of older adults in 8 2-hour classes. Group discussion, problem-solving strategies, videos and gentle physical exercise help older adults learn positive coping methods to reduce fear of falling and remain active and independent. Falls are the leading cause of fatal and non-fatal injuries for older adults.
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.
We'll work with your schedule.
