I am a graduate of the Matter of Balance class from August of 2017.  One of the most important things to remember, is to do the daily exercises. The older we get, the more challenging it becomes to stay strong.  I am 67 years young at this writing. I honestly don’t know how I got this old.

I took a minor fall four days ago, no injury at the time, except for my feelings. I tripped at the top of my stairs, landed on my palms and left knee. Four days later, I needed to apply for Meals On Wheels.  I have metal in my right wrist from a fall ten years ago and my right hand is painful the past two days.  I cannot cook right now, and I am a really good cook; just ask my neighbors.  Tylenol will be fine for pain management for me, but I am VERY DISAPPOINTED that I fell! I’ll be fine.
