A Matter of Balance
Many seniors experience fear of falling and restrict their activities. A Matter of Balance: Managing Concerns About Falls is a program designed to reduce the fear of falling and increase activity levels among older adults.
A Matter of Balance includes eight two-hour sessions for a small group led by a trained facilitator. This program was developed at the Roybal Center at Boston University, and has been nationally recognized.
Chronic Disease Self Management Program
The Chronic Disease Self-Management Program is a workshop given two and a half hours, once a week, for six weeks, in community settings such as senior centers, churches, libraries and hospitals. People with different chronic health problems attend together. Workshops are facilitated by two trained leaders, one or both of whom are non-health professionals with chronic diseases themselves.
Certified trainers provide individual instruction and education in all aspects of day-to-day management of diabetes - allowing patients to live healthier and happier lives.
Tai Chi for Arthritis
Tai chi’s slow, graceful movements, which originated thousands of years ago as a martial art, can improve balance, reduce stress and offer arthritis pain relief. The study of tai chi primarily involves three aspects: health, which concentrates on relieving the physical effects of stress on the body and mind; meditation, which fosters focus and calmness; and martial art, which promotes self-defense.
