Giving Back

In collaboration with congregate meal sites, Giving Back coordinates and delivers a ten-week Fall-Prevention Program to help frail seniors improve their balance and coordination. To maintain the program’s benefits, active senior mentors (55+) are paired with older-adult mentees (ave/age 81 yrs) to work on integrating vision, hearing, balance and the vestibular system through movement. This ongoing exercise regimen aims to eliminate or reduce the number of falls and potentially traumatic brain injuries for seniors.
