You know the popular nursery rhyme about Humpty Dumpty’s great fall… but you may not know about local services focusing on the prevention of falls of Summit County residents 65 years and older. Join us for a special event for training and hands-on experiences.
The Area Agency on Aging will kick off our event with the Senior Experience. A role play that emulates the skill and grace in senior physical movement, especially in the use of the hands with buttoning and unbuttoning clothing.
Thursday, April 29, 2010 from 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM (ET)
