A Matter of Balance: Managing Concerns about Falls

When 
Wednesday 10:00 am to 12:00 pm
Where 
Jackson Park Library - 1101 Morningside Street, SE, Roanoke, VA 24013

Ground level fall related injuries are increasing every year.  In 2015, trauma admissions for these injuries surpassed all other reason for traumatic admissions for the first time.  With this knowledge, the fear of falling is growing.  A Matter of Balance: Managing Concerns about Falls is an evidence based program that takes a multi-faceted approach to fall prevention. This program emphasizes practical strategies to manage falls.

Participants will learn to:
· View falls as controllable
· Set goals for increasing activity
· Make changes to reduce fall risks at home
· Exercise to increase strength and balance.
 
Program Overview:
· 8-week workshop
· 2 hours each week
· Sessions lead by certified coaches who have personal experience in dealing with falling
 
Registration is required.  To register, please click here and/or contact Carilion Direct at (540) 266-6000 and/or Toll-Free (800) 422-8482.

** After completing A Matter of Balance, participants are more comfortable
   talking about their fear of falling, feel comfortable increasing activity, plan
   to continue exercising, and would recommend the program.
 
We look forward to seeing you there!
