Pickle Ball

If you’ve never picked up a pickle ball paddle, you don’t know what you’re missing!

Matter of Balance

Matter of Balance acknowledges the risk of falling but emphasizes practical coping strategies to reduce this fear. These strategies include promoting a view of falls and fear of falling as controllable, setting realistic goals for increasing activity, changing the environment to reduce fall risk factors, and promoting exercise to increase strength and balance.
