Learn Fall Prevention Tips!

Falls are a serious concern. Marin General Hospital, in  collaboration with A Matter of Balance, the award-winning fall prevention program for senior adults, is offering a free eight session course for seniors whose fear of falling limits their social and physical activity.

Participants will be taught:

  • Safe and simple exercises to promote strength, flexibility, and balance
  • Problem solving strategies to address habits and behaviors
  • Lifestyle changes to promote safety
  • Ways to create a safer home environment…and more!

Each of the eight sessions is two hours. Class size is limited to 15 participants.

Please commit to attending all eight sessions and register by calling the library reference desk at 415-485-3321
