Virtual Aging in Place Seminar: Safe and Low-Tech Modifications for your Home
As many of us grow older it becomes more difficult to navigate our homes and communities. For the past two years, NeighborWorks NEPA has been assisting older adults with critical safety modifications, low tech modifications, and supportive services which assist them in being able to continue to live safely and with dignity in their own homes and communities.
Not all steps to continue to live safely in our homes and communities for older adults need to be completed or coordinated by a social service agency such as NeighborWorks. Therefore, NeighborWorks is partnering with the Lackawanna County Area Agency on Aging and Rep. Kyle Mullins (12th District, Lackawanna County) to offer monthly virtual seminars to inform future older adults, older adults, loved ones and caregivers of older adults, or anyone that is interested in learning safety and informative techniques which will allow them to continue living safely, comfortably and with dignity in their homes and communities.
The October session of the Aging in Place Education Seminar series will focus on making safe and low-tech modifications to help seniors live safely in their homes. Members of the NeighborWorks NEPA Aging in Place team – Occupational Therapists Stephanie DeNaples OTL/MS, and Kristin Luongo, OTL/MS- will discuss options and tips to increase the health and safety for those looking to continue living in their homes.
Registration for the seminar is required, and can be completed by visiting tinyurl.com/NWNEPAEducationOct. To learn more about the Aging in Place Education Seminar series, contact Mary Endrusick, NeighborWorks Northeastern Pennsylvania at firstname.lastname@example.org.
