PROMOTING ACTIVE AND INDEPENDENT LIVING IN SALINA AND SALINE COUNTY KANSAS
COA collecting home medical equipment for seniors in need
The Saline County Commission on Aging’s Older Americans
Month celebration will continue Saturday (May 6, 2017) with
the annual Home Medical Equipment Drive. The drive is
scheduled for 10 a.m.-1 p.m. in the parking lot of the Salina
Senior Center, 245 N. Ninth.
The COA will be collecting clean, gently used bath benches,
grab bars, adjustable walkers, adjustable steel or aluminum
canes, bedside commodes, fully functioning wheelchairs, and
other home assistive devices that people no longer need. The COA then loans these items to seniors who cannot
afford to purchase their own.
Throughout May, the COA and its facility, the Salina Senior Center, will have a variety of special activities to
celebrate Older Americans Month. Schedules are available at the Salina Senior Center’s first floor Reception
Desk or on the COA website at www.salinecoa.org . “Age Out Loud” is the national theme for this year’s Older
Americans Month celebration.
