Falls are the primary reason that Sonoma County residents 55 and older go to a hospital. To prevent falls, the Sonoma County Area Agency on Aging has implemented “A Matter of Balance: Managing Concerns about Falls” to help prevent falls. This nationally acclaimed program teaches practical coping strategies to both reduce fear of falling and to diminish the risk of falling, including group discussions, mutual problem solving and safety-promoting life style strategies, exercises to improve strength, coordination, and balance and home safety evaluation.
