An active, caring community for seniors

From the Desk of the Executive Director

Families and Friends of Kokoro:
Strength and Smarts: Fall Avoidance- One of the main reason that falls happen is because of reaching for things. Remind your loved ones that they should not reach to get things, especially if they have to lean to get it. Leaning forward could cause them to lose their balance, fall and injure themselves.  They should walk up and get close to the object and If they can't easily reach the object, PLEASE ask them to call Kokoro staff to get someone to help.
Health: The Flu and Cold is going around again! It is commonly spread by coughing/sneezing; touching something with the flu virus/bacteria (ex. door knobs, toilet handles, walker handles).  If you suspect you may have a cold or flu please stay away and come and visit Kokoro when you are better.
