RICHMOND, IN – LifeStream Services partnered with Milestone Contractors for a Fall Yard Clean Up on November 2. The volunteers cleaned up the yards of 12 senior citizens in Richmond who are unable to leave their homes or do not have someone to assist them.
The 12 Milestone Contractor volunteers cleaned up leaves and debris from the yards in an effort to prevent falls. According to the National Association of Area Agencies on Aging, falls are the leading cause of fatal and non-fatal injuries for older Americans with one in four Americans aged 65+ experiencing a fall each year. Falls can not only threaten the safety of older adults, but also their independence.
LifeStream Services is dedicated to helping seniors maintain their independence and quality of life. By partnering with organizations like Milestone Contractors, LifeStream can take the necessary steps to keep seniors safe.
