Stepping On is a high level, evidence based program proven to reduce falls and build confidence in older people. A community-based, small workshop.

Stepping On was developed in Australia and tested in a randomized trial where it demonstrated a 31% reduction in falls.

Stepping On is designed specifically for people who are 1) at risk for falling, 2) have a fear of falling, or 3) who have fallen one or more times.

Workshops are facilitated by trained leaders and provide a safe and positive learning experience. Subjects covered include: simple and fun strength and balance exercises: the role vision plays in keeping your balance how medications can contribute to falls; ways to stay safe when out and about in your community; what to look for in safe foot wear; and how to check your home for safety hazards.
