"MOTHER'S DAY GIFT SPECIAL" SENIOR MOMS PREVENT INJURIES WITH BETTER BALANCE

 "MOTHER'S DAY GIFT SPECIAL" SENIOR MOMS
 PREVENT INJURIES WITH BETTER BALANCE
 ROCHESTER, N.Y., April 23 /PRNewswire/ -- This Mother's Day, children with senior moms can give her a gift with a little more impact than flowers...the book "How To Prevent Falls, A Comprehensive Guide To Better Balance" (Senior Fitness Productions, $9.95). Long after flowers wilt, this book can save the life of a loved one, because "How To Prevent Falls" stops falling injuries that plague senior citizens. The book has been endorsed by Nobel laureate Dr. Linus Pauling, and can be ordered by calling toll-free 800-525-3707.
 The book's success lies in "The Balance System," a series of exercises developed by author Betty Perkins-Carpenter, which help seniors avoid falls and, when a fall is unavoidable, decrease the risk of injury. Falls are a leading cause of injury and death among older women, who make up the majority of America's growing elderly population.
 "How To Prevent Falls" has enormous effects not only in decreasing injuries but also in building self-confidence and maintaining independence.
 "This book is a life-saver, both mentally and physically," according to Perkins-Carpenter. "Many seniors walk timidly to avoid falling. The exercises in the book give them courage and confidence to try anything again!"
 Perkins-Carpenter thinks the book is ideal as a Mother's Day gift. "If I didn't write it," she said, "I would have loved for my kids to give it to me!"
 An innovative health professional all her life, Perkins-Carpenter has been an Olympic diving coach, author of the book "The Fun of Fitness," and founder of Fit by Five, an innovative nursery school program for preschool children. She travels the country teaching classes featuring the techniques of "How To Prevent Falls," appearing on television, newspaper interviews and discussing the program with the medical profession.
