**Immediate need: Matter of Balance coaches Matter of Balance addresses the fear of falling that many older adults experience.  People who develop this fear often limit their activities, which can result in physical weakness, making the risk of falling even greater.  This program is designed to reduce the fear of falling and increase activity levels among older adults.
