Description

Participants learn how to reduce their risk of falling in this 7-week workshop. 

If you are at risk for falls or are worried about falling, "Stepping On" is a program that can help you learn:

  • How to identify fall risk factors in your home and community
  • How to get up safely from a fall
  • Sitting, standing, strength and balance exercises
  • Strategies to help you stay independent and active
  • How footwear, medication and vision can affect your risk for falling

Experts — such as a trained program facilitator, peer leader, physical therapist, a pharmacist, a vision expert and a community safety expert — are part of the curriculum.

Participants will engage in sitting and standing exercises to increase strength and work on balance. You will also learn strategies to help you stay independent and active. The goal of the program is to build confidence in your ability to manage your fall risk.
