A Matter of Balance - Train the Trainer
A Matter of Balance (AMOB) has been specifically designed to help older adults 60 and over, reduce their fear of falling and increase daily activity levels. Many older adults who develop this fear, often limit their activities, which can result in physical weakness, making the risk of falling even greater. Workshops are conducted in two-hour class sessions once a week, over an eight-week period.
The success and popularity of this program has resulted in a call for volunteers to become certified coaches for A Matter of Balance.
Coach training is conducted in one eight-hour session and two sessions of observation by a master trainer. Volunteers Coaches are then able to co-coach A Matter of Balance workshops for individuals in their community.
