LiVe Well Center - St. George
Area Agency on Aging's FREE falls prevention workshop. About 30% of older people who fall lose their self-confidence and start to go out less often. Inactivity leads to social isolation and loss of muscle strength and balance, increasing the risk of falling. Stepping On aims to break that cycle!

A 7-week (one 2-hour session per week) falls prevention program conducted by trained leaders, and specially designed for adult learners.
Stepping On has been researched and proven to reduce falls by 31%!
Stepping On brings together the life experience of its participants and the expertise of community professionals. From the first session, participants put new skills to use. Group members set short term goals each week - goals that focus on life activities that are most important to them. Physical therapists, pharmacists and other experts help the group adapt fall prevention practices for individual needs and levels.
