The Rockland Department of Health is looking for volunteers to teach Matter of Balance classes, a fall prevention program for senior citizens that teaches strategies to reduce the fear of falling and increase activity levels.
It is offered free to the public at various sites throughout Rockland, and is taught by volunteers who are trained to become peer educators.
The next coach training will be held on Wednesdays from 10 a.m. – 12 p.m. starting January 21 at the RCC-Spring Valley campus in Spring Valley. Classes meet two hours a week for eight sessions.
For more information about Matter of Balance or to register for the coach training, call Barbara Plasker in the Department of Health at 845-364-3839.
