Building confidence, reducing falls 
Please join us for a 7-week workshop to learn important exercises and strategies to prevent falls. The Stepping On program is for independent community-dwelling older adults who have fallen, are at risk of falling, or who have a fear of falling. Participants will learn to better manage their own risk of falls and take steps to prevent falls. Participants will practice strength and balance exercises and learn how medications, vision, safe footwear, and home modifications can affect risk of falls. 

Register for the next workshop. Learn more.
