What is Stepping On?
Stepping On is an evidence-based fall-prevention program that meets virtually for two hours each week for 7 weeks total.
You will learn: Simple and fun balance and strength training; the role of vision in keeping your balance; how medications can contribute to falls; ways to stay safe when out in your community; what to look for in safe footwear; and how to check your home for safety. A guest MercyOne physical therapist and pharmacist will be joining us during a few sessions.
You must have access to a computer or phone with an internet connection and a webcam. If you do not have access to this technology, we would love to have you join us for an in-person workshop when it is safe to do so.
Online Class –a week prior to the first workshop, you will receive the link by email. You must have access to a computer or smartphone with an internet connection and a webcam.
Who is a good fit for the program?
Older adults with a fear of falling or who have fallen less than 6 times in the last year. You must be living in your own home or apartment (sorry no independent or assisted living residents).
Where: MercyOne Des Moines Medical Center
