Welcome to The Heart of Ida
How much do you know about your fall risk?
To Find Out!
One out of three older adults will fall this year. In Long Beach, 14,000 older adults will fall and end up in the hospital. To find out your fall risk, come to the Long Beach Fall Risk Clinic located at the Long Beach Senior Center at 1150 E.4th Street, Long Beach, CA 90802.
The number one reason older adults lose their independence is due to a fall.
Many of our seniors go without the day to day necessities that we take
for granted. After paying for shelter, utilities, medication & food they are often out of money. Every December Operation Holiday Hearts tries to lessen their burden with the gift of personal care packages. Often, these will be the only personal care items the senior will have all year. Kits are delivered to impoverished seniors living independently, in board and care facilities, and in nursing homes. All deliveries are made by children and adults that love to bring hope, joy and a big smile to the life of a senior. Many of the seniors we serve never have visitors, so the personal delivery is the biggest gift of all. Help us bring hope and joy to a low income senior this holiday season. Be sure to watch our Operation Holiday Hearts video that shows our wine tasting fundraiser, kids card making party, and delivery of gifts to seniors in need. You can contribute to Operation Holiday Hearts by making a donation to our Crowdrise fundraiser, purchase items from our Amazon Wish list, or thru PayPal.
