Older Adults, Families, Friends and Caregivers Invited to Attend Senior Safety Day, Sept. 13

Participate in the 2017 Senior Safety Day at the Lincolnia Senior Center!

WHAT: Senior Safety Day

WHEN: Wednesday, September 13, 2017 from 9:30 AM to 1:45 PM

WHERE: 4710 North Chambliss Street, Alexandria

Older adults and their families, friends and caregivers are all invited to attend this safety expo to hear from experts and receive information and resources to enhance their personal health and security. The day’s activities will feature the launch of Fairfax County’s new safety initiative – Silver Shield. The effort aims to protect Fairfax County’s older adults against harm, fraud and abuse, by providing greater understanding of the county’s array of services, programs and resources available to them.

Join us at the Lincolnia Senior Center for a full day of engagement, including:

9:30 AM – Launch of the Silver Shield Initiative: Join Supervisors Penny Gross and Pat Herrity and several additional county officials at a press conference to announce the launch of the county’s new Silver Shield Initiative.

10:30 AM – Fraud and Scam Education: Hear from county officials about how to handle solicitors and protect yourself from fraud and scammers.

10:45 AM to 1 PM – Resource Fair: Get information on county resources and ask the experts about protecting yourself against fraud, abuse and health risks.

11:45 AM to 1:45 PM – Flu Shots: Don’t miss this opportunity to get your annual flu shot. Reservations are required. For specifics on insurance coverage and to reserve your appointment, please contact the Lincolnia Senior Center in advance at 703-914-0330, TTY 711.

12:45 to 1:45 PM – File of Life and Yellow Dot Workshop: Minutes matter in an emergency. Taking the time to prepare critical health information can help save minutes and provide first responders with essential details to help save your life in the event of a car accident. To create your “File of Life,” bring all personal contact information, emergency contact information, medications (dosages and frequency), medical history, and a picture to this featured workshop. Fairfax County Fire & Rescue will assist with completing the paperwork to its entirety and will assist with applying the yellow dot to your vehicle to signify to first responders that the information is available.

For questions about the day’s activities, please contact the Lincolnia Senior Center at 703-914-0330, TTY 711.
