This event titled “How Seniors Can Stay Safe and Fit at Home” will address many steps seniors can take to stay healthy and secure in their home. The panel presentation will be virtual on Zoom and is free and open to the public. To register online, go to www.seniorservicesalex.org or call 703-836-4414, extension 110.
“How Seniors Can Stay Safe and Fit at Home” will feature informative presentations from representatives of Northern Virginia Falls Prevention Alliance, Goodwin House, Kupana Aikido Safe Falling for Seniors Center, and the Fairfax County’s Financial Exploitation Task Force. At the conclusion of the panel, presenters will be available to answer questions, time permitting.
As people age, more time is spent at home and the need for assistance increases. There are many easy ways to keep homes safe with fall prevention, proper falling techniques, home safety modifications and education about how scams target retirement savings and other valuables. This panel will address some options as to how to accomplish this in a simple and straightforward manner.
Senior Services of Alexandria is pleased to be back with the popular Speaker Series program and hopes to see you online. Beginning in January of 2022 SSA will again evaluate if in person Speaker Series program events are safe and possible.
