Senior center activities, Meals on Wheels, and other programming and care for Sandusky County seniors.
One out of every four adults age 65 and older falls every year. Those falls account for more than 850,000 hospitalizations and more than 29,000 deaths annually. These figures from the National Council on Aging (NCA) are why the NCA and Great Lakes Community Action Partnership (GLCAP) recognizes Sept. 21-25, 2020 as Falls Prevention Week.
In respect to Gov. Mike DeWine’s recent announcement that senior centers may reopen in late September, Great Lakes Community Action Partnership (GLCAP) Senior Services will now begin preparations for safely reopening its senior center services in Sandusky County. While the governor has stated that centers may reopen as soon as Sept. 21, a set reopening date for Sandusky County senior centers is yet to be determined, and will be decided in accordance with guidance from state and local health officials so as to ensure the safety of seniors and staff.
