What patients say about EBPs
A Matter of Balance helps me with fear of falling. The exercises motivate us to want to do more. It is beneficial to be with other Seniors and hear their ideas and worries; makes you feel like you aren’t alone. The classes include laughter and just makes you feel good.
I was asked to participate in the Diabetes Prevention Program. I did the assessment & was glad I did. The program has taught me how to be accountable for what I put in my body and that I have to move my body to prevent Diabetes. The coaches are great, and they help you along the way if you need it. The videos are helpful also.
