From Senior Services of Alexandria
Alexandria, VA – Senior Services of Alexandria (SSA) is pleased to announce that its monthly “Senior Living in Alexandria” education programs will return with in-person workshops on various topics relevant to older adults living independently and wishing to stay connected to their communities.
These sessions occur on the third Thursday of each month, starting at 10 am and ending no later than noon. We are pleased to continue some regular annual events, including a January Caregiver Support Workshop, Senior Health and Fitness Fair in May, and June Senior Law Day.
The first workshop on Senior Technology and Avoiding Scams and Fraud is shaping up with speakers from AARP and other local experts talking about the latest technologies to help older adults stay connected and educating them on scams targeting the senior population.
Also, SSA plans a workshop for the Spanish-speaking senior population as part of its Spanish-outreach program. We are excited about this newest component of our education programming.
