Take Charge of Your Health
The Area Agency on Aging offers free classes to help individuals take charge of their health, stay healthier, and remain independent. One well established, evidence-based program offered is A Matter of Balance. “Evidence-based” means program have been rigorously tested in controlled settings, proven effective, and translated into practical models that are available to community-based organizations. A Matter of Balance has been proven by research through Boston University to reduce the fear of falling and lessen the likelihood of falling after completion of the class.
Free classes are held throughout Mobile, Baldwin and Escambia Counties. Class size is about 12 people per course, and surveys show a high satisfaction rate among attendees. To find a class in your area, or if you are interested in hosting a course or becoming a trained volunteer, please contact us:
