Stepping On is an evidence-based, group-based falls prevention program, for older adults. The program meets for 2 hours for seven weeks and then reconvenes 3 months later for a “booster session.” A home visit is also offered and conducted by an occupational therapist. 

 

Stepping On program is led by an occupational therapist and brings in health professionals throughout the seven weeks, including a physical therapist, vision specialist, pharmacist and others. During the program, participants learn:

  • Simple, fun ways to improve strength and balance

  • The role vision plays in fall prevention

  • Information on medication management and Vitamin D

  • What to look for in safe footwear

  • Home safety tips

Due to COVID-19, some classes may be canceled. Please call to confirm class availability.
