Falls Prevention

Coachella Valley (CV) Falls Prevention Program

It's all A Matter of Balance

Why We're Here

The Mizell Senior Center in Palm Springs, California, has the most comprehensive, community-based falls prevention program in the Coachella Valley. Our charter is to bring A Matter of Balance (AMOB), an evidence-based falls prevention program, to older adults across the Valley. AMOB reduces their concerns of falling and address the physical and psychological barriers that may prevent them from maintaining a healthy level of activity as they age. We are afforded this opportunity by the Desert Healthcare District, The Auen Foundation, Regional Access Project Foundation, Desert Oasis Healthcare, and Private Contributions.
