VOLUNTEER COACHES NEEDED FOR FALL PREVENTION PROGRAM –TRAINING DATE RESCHEDULED FOR AUGUST 21st: Generations would like to expand our Matter of Balance (MOB) program! This nationally recognized evidence-based program’s goal is to reduce fear of falling, stop the fear of falling and increase activity levels among community-dwelling older adults. Studies show that one-half of the older adult population fear falling, one-third of older adults do fall and falls are the leading cause of fatal and non-fatal injuries for this group. We need volunteers who would like to be trained to lead these classes in our community. Our service area includes Daviess, Dubois, Greene, Knox, Martin and Pike counties, and we provide Matter of Balance classes in all counties throughout the year. Generations is hosting a free one-day Matter of Balance Coaches’ Training in September for volunteers interested in teaching this evidence-based fall prevention program to older adults in our service area. The training will be conducted on Wednesday, AUGUST 21st, 2019 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Vincennes University’s Zella Young Building, Room 305, 1019 N. 4th St., Vincennes, IN. Generations will provide materials for classes, supervision and program promotion. There is no selling involved. Seating is limited.
