NEWARK, N.J. - March 18, 2019 - PRLog -- The popular, nationally recognized "6 Steps to Better Balance" is coming to Newark.  Sharon Claye, President and Owner of Fall Prevention Training Services, LLC, is bringing this exciting new program to Newark for the first time on April 7.

Claye, a certified Master Trainer in this system, will be teaching a course for Occupational Therapist and Assistants, as well as fitness instructors, independent personal trainers, activity directors, and anyone interested in helping older adults to avoid falling and improve their confidence and independence.  "Every 12 seconds, an older adult is treated in the emergency room for a fall," says Claye. "These accidents can be dramatically reduced through learning this set of easy, yet effective, activities. Older adults need no longer live in fear of falling.  More than being just simple 'exercises', we teach brief targeted activities that serve more complex processes that affect the mind and body…and it's FUN!"

"This class offers a fully expanded treatment plan that can be adapted to a multitude of disabilities from simple vertigo to full blown dementia." – Grace C., OTR, Louisville, KY.

Developed by Dr. Betty Perkins-Carpenter (Penfield, NY), founder and President of Senior Fitness Inc., 6 Steps to Better Balance™ is a proven program that utilizes repetitive practice of a series of simple movements and activities, such as the "Chorus Line" and "Dancing with a Pillow," to help older adults gain better balance.  It is designed to reduce the probability of falls, the fear of falling and fall-related injuries. It also increases body flexibility, leg strength and overall endurance.
