This past weekend, we had the pleasure of joining a great number of individuals from our local community (and even some from distant communities) in walking to end Alzheimer's! We took part in advocating for the Alzheimer's Association in having individuals sign letters to local Congressman requesting an increase in funding for Alzheimer's research.

So many of us know someone affected by dementia. On Tuesday April, 5th, the Area Agency on Aging 11 's Ombudsman Program will be hosting a screening of Alive Inside followed a discussion about the Music and Memory program. Music in Memory provides iPods pre-loaded with music favorites to local seniors suffering from cognitive impairment.

In order to help more people we are also in need of iPod donations.

Fall Prevention Day!

Amy Plant, Part-Time Faculty, Gerontology, recently collaborated with the National Council on Aging and Mercy Health System to facilitate activities in a national program to celebrate National Fall Prevention Day on September 23rd, 2015. Among some of the activities coordinated include a group demonstration on proper procedures for falling, leading specific fall prevention exercises and presenting tips for home and travel safety. Following discussion, older adults participated in 10,000 steps for Fall Prevention, a one-mile walk, co-led by 86 year old power walker. Foot exams, gait and balance assessments, as well as blood pressure checks, were also offered as part of the on-going activities.
