Alexandria, VA – Senior Services of Alexandria (SSA) has finalized its monthly Senior Living in Alexandria in-person events, and we are excited to let you know about our programs for the upcoming year! This is SSA’s 13th year of monthly educational and fun programs for older adults living independently and wishing to stay connected to their communities.
The monthly events will occur on Wednesday or Thursday mornings, beginning at 10:00 or 10:30 am and ending around noon. We are continuing some regular annual events, including a January Caregiver Support Workshop, Senior Health and Fitness Fair in May, Spring Floral Arranging in April, and June Senior Law Day. See the full lineup in the sidebar.
The first event is on Senior Safety and Awareness: Home Tips, Fall Prevention, Stroke Awareness and Prescriptions. We’ve lined up a group of experts to discuss various topics to keep you safe inside and outside your home. Some presenters include the Northern Virginia Falls Prevention Alliance, tips from a local realtor on keeping your home safe by removing tripping hazards and other minor fixes, stroke prevention measures, and the importance of knowing how various prescriptions interact.

All the events are free and open to the public. Registration is required, and information is posted on SSA’s website at www.seniorservicesalex.org. A lot is going on, and we hope you join in!
