Do You Have Concerns About Falling?
Join us for a FREE 4-week program designed to manage falls and increase activity levels at The Gatherings this September. A Matter of Balance is a research-proven program designed to manage falls and improve strength, balance, and flexibility. The program will be covered in 8 two-hour sessions and will begin Tuesday, September 6, 2022 at 9 am. Participants will meet Tuesday and Thursday mornings (9-11 am) through September 29, 2022. There is no cost to participants.  A Matter of Balance is an informative, interactive, and social way to decrease your risk of falls and get stronger. Participants may join in the first or second session.  All are welcome. 

Who should attend? Anyone who:
• Is concerned about falls
• Is interested in improving balance, flexibility and strength

You will learn to:
• View falls as controllable
