September is National Senior Center Month. The National Institute of Senior Centers is celebrating by highlighting the theme: Senior Centers: The Key to Aging Well. This year’s theme was chosen to highlight how senior centers share knowledge, programming, and resources that make a different in the lives of older adults.
One resource that can be beneficial to senior centers and those who frequent them is NFPA’s Remembering When: A Fire and Fall Prevention Program for Older Adults. In such a target-rich environment, public educators, health educators and volunteers can present the program to dozens of individuals at a time. While Senior Centers are being highlighted is a great time to bring into focus programming to enhance their quality of life.
