What is Stepping On?

Stepping On is a program that has been researched and proven to reduce falls in older people.

It consists of a workshop that meets for two hours a week for seven weeks. Workshops are led by a health professional and a peer leader – someone who, just like you, is concerned about falls. In addition, local guest experts provide information on exercise, vision, safety and medications.

Topics include:

  • Simple and fun balance and strength training
  • The role that vision plays in keeping your balance
  • How medications can contribute to falls
  • Ways to keep from falling when out in your community
  • What to look for in safe footwear
  • How to eliminate falls hazards from your home

Is this workshop for you?

Stepping On is designed specifically for anyone who:

  • Is 60 years or older
  • Has had a fall in the past year
  • Is fearful of falling
  • Lives at home
  • Does not have dementia

Classes are offered throughout the year.
