Patric McDowell, Safe at Home Project Coordinator, CICOA Aging & In-Home Solutions. She explains that CICOA Aging & In-Home Solutions are the unbiased experts who serve older adults, people with disabilities, and family caregivers in central Indiana.
For the fifth-annual Safe at Home event on Saturday, Sept. 20, CICOA and their title sponsor United Home Healthcare want to make sure seniors are safe from illness as well as safe from falls and injury.
Since 2009, CICOA volunteers have made 122 home modifications during Safe at Home to help make homes safe and accessible for older adults. This year, in addition to making modifications to 15 homes in the North East Community, CICOA has joined the National Council on Aging’s Flu + You program to educate seniors about the dangers of flu and the importance of vaccination.
Walgreens is partnering with CICOA Aging & In-Home Solutions to provide free flu shots from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. at CICOA’s offices. We hope to immunize 100 seniors that morning.
