Stepping On is an evidence-based program aimed at reducing falls and building confidence in older adults. This seven-week program is specifically for those who are at risk of falling, have a fear of falling or who have fallen one or more times. Participants will learn:
- To identify and remove or avoid fall hazards in your home and outside
- How vision, hearing, medication, and footwear affect your risk of falling
- Strength and balance exercises you can adapt to your individual level
- To get back on your feet the right way if you do fall
The series will feature trained facilitators and guest experts from Mayo Clinic Health System.
