Exciting news! SSA has become a member of the Northern Virginia Falls Prevention Alliance.
The mission of the Northern Virginia Falls Prevention Alliance (NVFPA) is to maximize independence and improve quality of life of older adults by reducing falls and fall-related injuries. Alliance members work collaboratively to assure the availability of, access to, and utilization of a coordinated and comprehensive system of community-based falls prevention programs and practices in the region.
Their goals include community education; infrastructure to identify needs, resources, and gaps; and capacity to establish and sustain a sufficient number and variety of fall prevention programs.
This is just one more way Senior Services of Alexandria works to complement the work others in our region are doing and we’re excited about this partnership.
