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. We are awaiting a new Grant to serve the entire Coachella Valley. Currently we are able to  resume classes @ our Home Site here @ Mizell  due to a grant from the Auen Foundation and private donations.  Next Course starts November 25th  12:00-2:00 pm each Monday & Wednesday 1/6/2020-1/29/2020
