Better Balance; Fewer Falls: A research-based program to help older adults stay upright

Presenter: Kymberly Williams-Evans, PhD (ABD)

Date: July 23, 2024

Time: 9:00 AM PST, 11:00 AM CST, Noon EST

To register, click here

Whether you work with retirement community members, workout groups, or one-on-one clients, you can design effective, science-based, cutting-edge balance workouts. As baby boomers age, they become increasingly interested in maintaining balance. Their fear of falling has either been realized or they anticipate falling based on their parents’ or friends’ experiences. Older adults want to ford streams when hiking, climb stairs abroad where no railings exist, and recover quickly if they do fall. In short, they want the freedom to move, walk, and balance with confidence and a spring in their step.

Learning objectives
This webinar will support you in:

  • Creating and tailoring workouts for your residents, clients, or class members concerned with balance and fall risk.
  • Addressing a significant and important group that is largely untapped.
  • Mixing and matching program elements to create relevant sessions, whether for individual participants or group classes.
  • Offering balance-related movement tasks that are effective and scientifically proven.
