Senior Services Plus will host a webinar at noon Thursday, Sept. 17, for the American Society on Aging for senior service providers nationwide.
The webinar, Learning to Recognize and Resolve Barriers that Prevent Consumers from Accessing Services, will explain to other service organizations how to make an effort to serve more senior citizens.
“Our agency is honored to participate in this national webinar and be recognized as a leader in aging,” Senior Services Plus Executive Director Jonathan Becker said. “We hope to be sharing information on our model so other senior centers and aging providers can use our model to improve their own. We strive to maintain and grow our programs and this is an opportunity for us to show exactly how we have been able to do so.”
Events and Activities Coordinator Kim Campbell and Information and Assistance Coordinator Kelly Chapman will share how Senior Services Plus works to overcome physical, economic and social barriers.
“This webinar will provide chances for smaller organizations to utilize resources they may not realize are available,” Becker said. “They will learn about how our facility forms partnerships with other organizations in an effort to meet the needs of the aging population.”
The webinar will spotlight the agency’s outreach into surrounding counties, including congregate dining sites, fitness class offerings, homecare services, “Taking it on the Road” with Information and Assistance and the organization’s partnership with the Foster Grandparent Program.
Members of the American Society on Aging are able to view the webinar for free, and non-members can register for a $99 fee. For information, visit www.asaging.org/web-seminars.
