BETTER BALANCE for Life

The BETTER BALANCE for Life program (formally Fall Prevention) to be taught by Margie Galanos, OTA is based on nationally accredited balance and fall prevention programs: STEADI by the CDC, Otago Exercise Program and Fallproof by Debra Rose, PHD.

  • Improved brain function - clearer thinking helps avoid situation that increase falls
  • Reverse age-related loss of balance and help prevent falls
