Falls are a public health concern in Minnesota. Falls are the number one cause of trauma death and non-fatal major trauma. The vast majority of these cases are among older Minnesotans. Based on these facts CareBuilders at Home makes it our priority to help educate seniors about falls, and reduce falls in our community. We do this by teaching Matter of balance.
Matter of Balance is an evidence based program designed to reduce the fear of falling and increase the activity levels of older adults. CareBuilders at Home has been trained to teach these classes. We will be teaching a class at Covenant Village in Golden Valley starting Tuesday, January 26th, 2016. We will be keeping you up to date on our progress in the class, and any important questions that may come up.
If you are concerned about falls, or want to take the first step in getting tools to help you prevent falls as you age. Please give us a call and ask about our in Home Fall Assessment.
