September 2021 Newsletter

September is here! With the change in temperature, it is evident that the seasons are changing. As we gear up for Fall, LCOG wants to help prevent falls. According to the Mayo Clinic, falls are a leading cause of injury among older adults. Physical changes, health conditions, and sometimes medications make falls more likely. You can prevent falls by hazard-proofing your home, staying active, wearing sensible shoes, and reviewing your medications. Lowcountry COG would also like to remember the victims, the families, and survivors of the September 11th attack.
This edition of our newsletter includes the long-awaited Long Range Transportation Plan survey and more information about public transit in the Lowcountry. You will find out about SC Works Lowcountry's upcoming Open House and how to enroll in a nearby senior center.
Happy Reading!
