Healthy Alternatives – WORKING WITH ELDERS TO REDUCE FALLS AND INCREASE MEMORY

MEMORY Join me and my guest, Karen Peterson, as we talk about a program that she has developed that prevents falls in the elderly and helps to restore memory (www.MoveWithBalance.org).

Karen Peterson has an MA. She has 40 years of teaching experience in adult eduction programs and senior centers. Karen has been working with senior citizens for 18 years. In 2000, she began a nonprofit called Giving Back and one of the programs, Move With Balance, focuses on using active elders to mentor frail elders by practicing integrative movements. She has achieved some very dramatic results that we’ll be talking about.
