One in three adults aged 65 and older falls each year. Of those who fall, 20% to 30% suffer moderate to severe injuries that make it hard for them to get around or live independently, and increase their risk of early death.

ACHD is hosting a Take Charge of Your Life Educational Series to address this concern. It is called A Matter of Balance Program which emphasizes practical strategies to reduce fear of falling and increase activity levels. Participants learn to view falls and fear of falling as controllable, set realistic goals to increase activity, change their environment to reduce fall risk factors, and exercise to increase strength and balance. Small-group, highly interactive workshops are eight weeks long, meeting once a week for 2 hours.

Program is FREE and open to the public. Please call to register at 440-576-3023 for this program.
