Volunteer Coaches Needed for Balance Program

Cornerstone VNA is looking for volunteer coaches to join their newly established ‘A Matter of Balance’ program volunteer team.  This important program is designed to help people manage concerns about falls and increase physical activity.  Through an 8-week class, the volunteer coaches help participants to become more confident about managing falls, identify ways to reduce falls, and lead exercises to help increase strength and balance. According to Judy Goodnow, Cornerstone VNA Volunteer Coach, “Participants really enjoyed the class and felt that it helped with their balance and stability.”

The next coaches training will take place on February 27 and 28 from 9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. at the Cornerstone VNA office on 178 Farmington Road in Rochester, NH. No previous experience is needed to become ‘A Matter of Balance’ Volunteer Coach.  Once trained, volunteers will be assigned in pairs to facilitate community balance programs that will take place over an 8-week period for 2 hours each week.  Volunteers are asked to facilitate at least two ‘A Matter of Balance’ programs per year.

If you are interested in joining this notable volunteer team, please contact Katie Michaud, MS, OTR/L at kmichaud@cornerstonevna.org or 603-332-1133 x186.  You can also find additional details at www.cornerstonevna.org/volunteer/.
