ElderServe’s Safe Center for Seniors - the community services division of the Hebrew Home for the Aged at Riverdale - is a one-stop clearing house of information for seniors and family caregivers.
Workshops topics will include ways to better communicate with doctors and family members, how to tap into resources and support services, ways to lower stress and how to create a “no fall zone” in your home to ensure safety for your loved one. There will also be a workshop on how to recognize signs of Alzheimer’s disease and how to manage changes in behavior.
The workshops will take place from 2 p.m. to 2:45 p.m. and from 3:45 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. Speakers will be from ElderServe’s Alzheimer’s Advisory Committee, the New Rochelle Office for the Aging, Caregiver Access.org and A Healthier You, LLP.
