Description:

The team at Giving Back trains mobile, fit seniors aged 55+ (mentors) to work with frail elders (mentees) at various sites on Maui. Their program Move with Balance® was shown to reduce falls by 66 percent in an independent study by Dr. Lorrin Pang in 2012 at Roselani Place assisted living facility. In 2012 the Move with Balance® program received the MindAlert Award from the American Society on Aging. In 2015 they were a Premier Cares finalist. Please call if you'd like to volunteer as a mentoring work directly with a frail senior. They also serve Alzheimer's/Dementia clients. Please call 573-3109 to see where they currently have programs on Maui. The Move With Balance® program offers learning opportunities that include live original music, integrated movements, vision training, focusing and balance exercises to prevent injuries from falls and enhance cognitive skills.
