Many older adults experience concerns about falling and restrict their activities. A MATTER OF BALANCE is an award-winning program designed to manage falls and increase activity levels.

It is difficult and often impossible to surf the internet, read a newspaper or magazine, watch TV or listen to the radio, without hearing about the great benefits of some new supplement or exercise routine that promises to relieve illnesses that have plagued mankind since the beginning of recorded history. All this information can be overwhelming.  What we really need is simple, straight-forward advice from people like us who we can trust.
