DON’T WAIT, CHECK THE DATE!
Tuesday, October 11, 10:00am
“Don’t Wait, Check the Date! Replace Smoke Alarms Every 10 Years” is the official theme for this year's Fire Prevention Week campaign, October 9-15. Do you know how old your smoke alarms are? Did you know that smoke alarms have an expiration date? Minneapolis Fire Department Staff Captain Casidy Anderson will tell us about the importance of home smoke alarms, and the FREE smoke alarm program that Minneapolis Fire and the Red Cross are offering! Also included in the discussion will be information on the top causes of fires, how to prevent them, and the risks and special considerations for older adults.
SET GOALS, TAKE ACTION FOR YOUR HEALTH!
Tuesday, October 25, 10:00am
Did you know that East Side Neighborhood Services’ Empowering Vital Aging program sponsors four evidence-based health and wellness classes in partnership with the Metropolitan Area Agency on Aging and the Wilder Foundation? A Matter of Balance, Tai Ji Quan, Living Well with Chronic Conditions and Living Well with Diabetes classes empower participants to make changes that can enhance their health and wellbeing. Activities and Outreach Specialist Gloria Coles will demonstrate how participating in these classes can help you learn techniques that reduce your risk of falls and the fear of falling and how to manage conditions such as diabetes, arthritis, chronic pain, depression and vision or hearing loss.
