ben aydin adjBen Aydin from Right at Home Lehigh County was featured on WFMZ on the topic of "Including the elderly this holiday season". Ben gave several points to consider to ensure that an older loved one is included in the holiday festivites. Sometimes seniors are left out of family gatherings because the children have moved away or are very busy this time of year. It is also important to help seniors celebrate in a safe way. He mentioned mobility can be an issue. For instance, we need to help them navigate the hectic mall envirnment. We want to provide safe and convenient transportation - whether it be family or something like Lanta. 

No matter what you do the important  thing to remember is that your time is the best gift you can give to your older family member.

USO 2018 01 adjIf you stopped by the Fearless Fire Company last Thursday, the place was on fire with fun. Upbeat music was ringing through the hall as more than 200 seniors gathered to “dance through the decades”. The jitterbug, fox trot and even a few waltzes filled the afternoon with an energetic vibe. The smiles were outweighed only by the sharp moves of some of the dancers who could have auditioned for “Dancing with the Stars”.

Raffles were held with excited winners heading home with baskets of goodies and prizes. Snacks were served for those who wanted to take a break from dancing or who came just to socialize. All in all, everyone had a wonderful time.

Mothers Day 10Six Lehigh Valley Aging in Place volunteers went to ManorCare in Bethlehem and hosted games, crafts and spent time with the women there in honor of mother's day. 

One of the important committees at LVAIP is the Volunteer Committee headed by Brandy Padilla. The volunteers coordinate quarterly events to help the elderly in the community. Recent events included a Valentine's Day event at YWCA Adult Day Center (February 2018) and Wreathes Across America event (December 2017) at Cedar Hill Memorial Cemetary. 

The Volunteers are planning a summer event and will be helping out at the Slate Belt Senior Games. To learn more or get involved with volunteering with LVAIP in the community contact Brandy. Many thanks to her and her committee for their commitment to giving time to our seniors!
