Designed for people living with MS who use a walker, crutches, or a scooter (but are still able to walk a short distance) and may be at risk for falling.

Through this course, participants will:

  • Increase awareness of the prevalence of falls among people with MS and the risk factors that may contribute to falls
  • Identify strategies they can employ to prevent falls and develop a fall prevention action plan
  • Engage in and develop a home fitness plan that addresses balance, endurance, and strength, aimed at reducing fall risk
  • Increase their confidence in minimizing all risk and in managing falls if they do occur
  • Meets every Friday starting September 5-October 31 2014.
  • Identify additional community resources to implement a fall prevention action plan
