SOUTHERN MAINE AGENCY ON AGING

A Matter of Balance Program Seeks Volunteer Leaders

Looking for a new way to engage with people in your community and improve your lifestyle? Evidence suggests that all you need to do is volunteer. SMAA has been offering A Matter of Balance in the community for many years. This workshop offers a comprehensive and in-depth look at fall prevention, including an engaging blend of group discussion and a gentle seated/standing exercise program, and covers many topics: home safety, how to get up from a fall, self-advocacy and more. It’s very social with an opportunity to learn from other participants as well as the coaches.

In the past we’ve offered the program regularly, at various locations in southern Maine. This year we plan to offer both in person and virtual classes, and we are looking for volunteer leaders to help us. If you are enthusiastic about working with older adults, enjoy leading meaningful group discussions, and are willing to learn the platform skills needed for virtual coaching, please consider training to be a Matter of Balance volunteer leader. A two-session fall training is scheduled for September 13 & 16 th in Biddeford. Contact us at 207-396-6529 or amob@smaaa.org to join our team or to learn more.
