Classes to Keep You Safely on Your Feet
Falls are serious, especially for adults 55 and above. Injury from falling is the major reason older Sonoma County residents go to the hospital. A Matter of Balance is a free fall prevention class series that can help keep you safe. The series is eight classes in length.
This nationally-acclaimed program includes group discussions, mutual problem-solving and safety strategies, exercises and a home safety evaluation. Each two-hour class explores practical strategies for preventing falls and simple exercises to improve strength, coordination and balance.
Classes are offered throughout Sonoma County by the Area Agency on Aging. Courses are free, with a suggested donation of $20 for materials, and no one is turned away.
