Senior Citizen Health & Safety

Trying to remain independent yet being in need of help with day to day home life can be a challenge. It can be overwhelming if you or a loved one doesn’t have the basic platform of information of how to stay safe in your home and healthy with your lifestyle.

 

 

Enumclaw Fire Department would like to offer safety information to senior citizens. Staying safe from falls in the home, knowing the risk factors of heart attack and stroke, and being able to remain independent as long as possbile are many achievements we want to help with.
