A Sample Experience
Over the past couple of years my balance has been out of whack. Little did I expect in my first class of your How to Prevent Falls course that your suggestion would become a successful remedy for my problem. Immediately after the class, I went to the JCC’s inside circular track to walk. As you suggested, I began by choosing a spot in the distance to focus on, and each time I rounded a curve I would focus on a new spot. If I felt I was beginning to lose my balance, I would stop and stare at the spot without blinking until the feeling would leave. Then I decided to carry my cane instead of using it just to test if I needed it. I didn’t really appreciate your expertise by understanding my dilemma and offering a simple solution that no one before had ever suggested to me. “Choosing a spot to focus on” has certainly helped me. Happily, I have regained confidence in my balance so when I walked into the JCC for my second class, I left my cane in the car.
