This program introduces ten simple, yet progressive exercises that help maintain strength, balance and flexibility. If you work with seniors on a regular basis, you may want to take an HSEP training session from one of our certified trainers.
The session explores social connections before and after retirement, and how we can plan to stay connected amid life’s changes.
These workshops cover such topics as how can you tell that you need an assistive device, whether you should consider a cane or walker, what is the proper height for a cane or walker, the importance of bathroom grab bars, and other assistive devices in the home, and information on where to obtain assistive devices.
The presentations include a dramatic skit put on by volunteer actors about how friends might approach someone with a gambling problem.
This session starts with a dramatic presentation followed by a discussion of some of the factors that may help us achieve a more positive outlook and a sense of well-being.
This workshop includes a Powerpoint presentation about changing trends in volunteering and discusses how the “baby boomers” and younger generations tend to look for different volunteer experiences than older generations.
The training provides a detailed discussion of the factors that increase the risk of falls, as well as case studies and group discussion of how falls can be both predicted and prevented.
We have several presentations to provide helpful information to the seniors your organization serve.
To request a presentation for your group, or to get copies of our illustrated chart or brochure, contact Community Links toll free at 1-855-253-9355 or by emailing email@example.com.

Our presentation covers the factors that put us a risk of falling, and provides helpful tips about how to reduce the risk, including becoming more physically active, removing falls hazards from the home, and working to change hazards in the outdoor environment.
