How to Prevent Falls:
Better Balance, Independence and Energy in 6 Simple Steps

This helpful book is by Betty Perkins-Carpenter, Ph.D, and is based on her 6 steps to better balance and fewer falls. Those steps include unique ways to train your balance like dancing with a pillow or walking while talking on the phone, things that you normally wouldn’t think of as balance exercises, but they do indeed work your balance.

Her book also includes more conventional stretches and strength exercises, as well as advice on how to fall. The book is 152 pages in a large font with lots of pictures.
