      Volunteer Opportunity!! A Matter of Balance Coach Training

      Are you passionate about fall prevention & ready to take action? Falls pose a significant threat to older adults’ independence and quality of life. With so much to lose, a concern about balance can quickly turn into a fear of falling. A Matter of Balance: Managing Concerns About Falls coach training offers volunteers an opportunity to step up and stop falls in their communities.The A Matter of Balance program explores how the fear of falling can influence fall risk, teaches exercises to improve balance, strength, flexibility and endurance, provides assertiveness training and offers solutions to fall hazards in the home. Volunteer Coaches receive initial training and continuing education opportunities to enhance facilitation skills. No previous knowledge about fall prevention or exercise is necessary because all teaching is done from a detailed manual. Registration closes August 30. This FREE training will be held on Thursday, September 12th. To register, contact Stephanie at 828-251-7438 or stephanie@landofsky.org.
