Stepping On is an evidence-based program that offers participants a way of reducing falls and at the same time increasing self-confidence in situations where they are at risk of falling. 

Participants learn balance exercises and develop specific knowledge and skills to prevent falls, Subjects covered include improving balance and strength, home hazards, safety in public places, safe footwear, community mobility, vision, coping after a fall, and how to initiate a medication review. Guest experts will include a physical therapist, pharmacist, and vision & community safety experts.
