Matter of Balance
Amy and Kyra of OPT Bristol-Warren recently had the opportunity to provide a lecture on falls and balance at the Benjamin Church Manor in Bristol. Offered through the Bayside Family YMCA of Barrington and Edna Kurtzman, the Matter of Balance Program is an evidence-based program that is designed to assist in not only reducing the fear of falls but also in the promotion of increased activity levels in older adults. Provided in a group setting, Matter of Balance works on initiation of fall prevention strategies, fall management, exercise to reduce fall risk and improve overall strength and flexibility, as well as home and activity modification. A truly beneficial program that OPT was pleased to be a part of!
