Many older adults experience a fear of falling. People who develop this fear often limit their activities, which can result in physical weakness,making the risk of falling even greater. Matter of Balance is a program designed to reduce the fear of falling and increase activity levels among older adults. Matter of Balance includes eight two-hour sessions for a small group led by a trained facilitator. During the class, participants learn to:

• View falls as controllable

• Set goals for increasing activity

• Make changes to reduce fall risk at home

• Exercise to increase strength and balance
