Participants learn about the importance of exercise in preventing falls and practice exercises to improve strength, coordination, and balance. Participants also conduct a home safety evaluation and learn to get up and down safely. Additional topics include home safety, assertiveness, developing positive strategies for change, reducing barriers to exercise, identifying physical risk factors for falls, personal action planning, recognizing misconceptions about falls, and moving from self-defeating to self-motivating thoughts. The curriculum includes group discussions, mutual problem solving, role playing activities, and a few homework assignments. This course is being conducted as a hybrid course with the University of Missouri Extension. Call 1-800-748-7826 for more details.
