802: Designing Effective Balance and Mobility Programs—A Multidimensional Approach

Time Block T - Sunday, 7:30-9:20am
Presented by: Debbie Rose, PhD
Session Format: Workshop

The purpose of this hands-on workshop is to provide instructors with the screening tools and curriculum materials needed to implement a targeted balance and mobility program for older adults experiencing balance and gait problems that have elevated risk for falls. Attendees will learn how to quickly screen and assess older adults for balance and mobility problems, and then develop a set of exercise progressions and culminating activities across multiple dimensions of balance that can be easily modified to raise or lower the challenge of each exercise.
