the fear of falling and increase activity levels. Participants learn to
view falls as controllable, set goals for increasing activity, make changes
to reduce fall risks at home, and exercise to increase strength and balance.
The program fee is $25 for Great River Health Fitness members and $40
for nonmembers. It includes classes, educational materials and snacks.
