“A Matter of Balance” Graduates Celebrated

Many older adults experience a fear of falling. People who develop this fear often limit their activities, which can result in physical weakness, making the risk of falling even greater. To address this concern, Fairfield Memorial Hospital recently held an A Matter of Balance Program that helped area residents reduce their fear of falling and increase activity levels. 

“It was a privilege to help these wonderful members of our community overcome their fear of falling so that they could enjoy doing the activities they love and living the life they deserve,” stated Susie Devoy, RN, Director of Senior Life Solutions.

Larry Williams, program graduate, stated, “I think it was a very beneficial program to help us avoid falls to the best of our ability. I would highly recommend this program to anyone.”

“It was a pleasure to share fall prevention and safety strategies with the participants of the A Matter of Balance Program.  Awareness is the best tool for prevention, and I feel we provided this awareness in a fun and learning atmosphere which will allow them to live the most fulfilling life possible,” stated Jennifer Bowers, PTA, Director of Therapy Services.

For more information on A Matter of Balance Program and when the next classes will be held, please call (618) 847-8298 for more information.
