Forever Young – Mini-Conference
September 10 @ 10:30 am - 1:00 pm
We’re having a mini-conference given by NCBAM (North Carolina Baptist Aging Ministry). Cost will be $10 to cover lunch. Sign up with Cherlynn Cooley.
Fire and/or Fall Prevention Classes: Each NCBAM team member is trained to present the “Remembering When” program. This program was developed specifically for aging adults by the National Fire Protection Association and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The classes focus on eight key fall prevention strategies and/or eight key fire prevention strategies.
Not Living in Neverland: Removing Barriers in Your Home: The homes most of us live in were not built for aging adults. They are “Peter Pan” homes built for people who were never going to grow old. Learn the “how-tos” of removing barriers in your home. Learn ways to safer living as an aging adult and free yourself to be more fully used by God.
Building Better Balance (BBB): NCBAM has partnered with Building Better Balance—an evidence-based screening process that identifies fall risk. Individual screenings include just a few questions, one walking and balance activity, and take only ten minutes. Screenings can be the focus of a program or incorporated into other events. Participants receive information about fall prevention resources in their communities and personalized letters to share with their physicians.
