          • Data, brochures, and other resources for those working to reduce the incidence of older adult falls.



        • A Matter of Balance is an 8-week program of structured group intervention that 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.
