About this Event

A MATTER OF BALANCE is an award-winning program designed to manage falls and increase activity levels.

Weekly sessions are held online via Zoom - participants need a computer with internet connection. This is not an exercise program. Simple chair exercises are included that focus on balance, flexibility and strength.

Note: There is no charge to participants, but must be a resident of one of the following North Carolina counties: Anson, Cabarrus, Gaston, Iredell, Lincoln, Mecklenburg, Rowan, Stanly, or Union.

You will learn to:

  • View falls as controllable
  • Make changes to reduce fall risks at home
  • Set goals for increasing activity
  • Exercise to increase strength and balance

You should consider attending this program if you:

  • Want to improve balance, flexibility and strength
  • Are concerned about falls or have fallen in the past
  • Have restricted activities because of falling concerns

Facilitators: Pam Bryson (pam.bryson@gastongov.com) and Linda Minges (linda_minges@ncsu.edu)
