A Matter of Balance Coach
ORGANIZATION: RSVP Polk
Please visit the new page to apply.
Many older adults experience a fear of falling. People who develop this fear often limit their activities, which can result in physical weakness, making the risk of falling even greater. A Matter of Balance is a program designed to reduce the fear of falling and increase activity levels among older adults.
If you are 55+ years of age you can become a trained A Matter of Balance coach and lead classes for other seniors in your local community. Twice a week for 4 weeks or once a week for 8 weeks.
Free training provided.
