 Stepping On is a series of community-based, small-group workshops designed specifically for people who are at risk of falling, have a fear of falling, or who have fallen one or more times. The workshops include strength and balance exercises, information on how medications can contribute to falls, the role vision plays in keeping your balance, ways to stay safe when in the community, what to look for in safe footwear, and how to check your home for safety hazards.
