A Matter of Balance

April 21 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 1:00 pm on Tuesday, repeating until April 21, 2020

Group of seniors exercising in a circle. Text reads: Juniper. Your Health. Your Community. A Matter of Balance. The fear of falling is as dangerous as falling itself as people limit activities, resulting in physical weakness, making the risk of falling even greater.

Fear of falling can be just as dangerous as falling itself.  People who develop this fear often limit their activities, which can result in severe physical weakness, making the risk of falling even greater.  Many older adults also experience increased isolation and depression when they limit their interactions with family and friends.  A Matter of Balance can help people improve their quality of life and remain independent.

A Matter of Balance is designed to reduce the fear of falling and increase activity levels among older adults. Participants learn to set realistic goals to increase activity, change their environment to reduce fall risk factors, and learn simple exercises to increase strength and balance.  Sign up today for our 8 week course, taught by two East Side Elders team members.

When:  8 week course meeting every Tuesday from 1pm to 3pm, starting March 3rd

Where:  City View Center, 463 Maria Avenue, Saint Paul, MN 55106.  Location has accessible parking and accessible bathroom stalls.  You will not need to climb stairs to get into the building.
