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 Desert Oasis Healthcare, and Private Contributions. Currently we are holding to classes @ our Home Site here at Mizell and throughout the Valley at Desert Oasis Healthcare Facilities. The next Mizell course starts February 3rd 12: 00-2:00 pm each Monday & Wednesday 2/3/2020-3/2/2020. $20.00 for member’s $30.00 Non-Members. Pre-registration is required.
