Details

Over half of seniors fall annually.  As alarming as they are, these documented statistics are probably much lower than the actual number of falls as many incidents are unreported by seniors and unrecognized by family members or caregivers.  Those who fall are two to three more times more likely to fall again. It has been estimated that 20-30% of seniors fear falling and 30-50% of elders report that fear of another fall results in loss of confidence and self-imposed restriction of activities, thereby increasing the risk of falls.

Genesis Trauma Services offers education to learn more about decreasing your risk for falls and to increase your balance and mobility. Matter of Balance (MOB) classes are offered for free to Muskingum, Perry, Morgan, Noble, Coshocton and Guernsey county residents.

Matter of Balance is an eight week class that includes exercises for balance and strength as well as addressing the fear of falling.

Cost

Classes are free and meet once a week for the 8 week session. 

Registration

Registration is required.
