Matter of Balance

Central Florida Speech and Hearing Center offers a Matter of Balance Class to seniors and it’s free of charge!

You can regain your independence by learning to manage falls today!

Because CFSHC knows the risks involved with falling, we offer a free 8 week matter of balance class to seniors on an ongoing basis. A Matter of Balance: Managing Concerns About Falls emphasizes practical strategies to reduce this fear and increase activity levels. Participants learn to view falls and fear of falling as controllable. They will learn to set realistic goals to increase activity. In addition, they will change their environment to reduce fall risk factors. Most of all, the exercises help to increase strength and balance.  A Matter of Balance includes eight two-hour sessions for a small group led by a trained facilitator.  Also, sessions three through eight include low-impact exercises. In addition, the Matter of Balance Class will help you to make changes to reduce fall risks, improve balance, and increase your activity.
