Goodwill Easter Seals Miami Valley

  • 12 people are interested

We are seeking individuals interested in working with classes of senior adults as a lay leader/coach (you will be paired with another coach) to

  • view falls and fear of falls as controllable
  • set realistic goals for increasing activity
  • change environments to reduce fall risk factors
  • promote exercise to increase strength and balance

Coaches attend 8 hours of training and are expected to co-lead two sessions yearly. The classes with the seniors are fun and the rewards are great.

About Goodwill Easter Seals Miami Valley

Location:

660 South Main St, Dayton, OH 45402, US

Mission Statement

Our mission is to empower people with disabilities and other disadvantages to achieve independence and improve their quality of life.

Description

When Goodwill Industries Dayton and Easter Seals agencies combined in 1999 to become what is now known as Goodwill Easter Seals Miami Valley, we had only just begun to realize the impact we could have on the lives of people with disabilities throughout our community. Our mission became more clean; help as many people with disabilities as possible and empower them in their journeys toward independence.

By becoming one agency with a single purpose, we are able to offer more service to more people than ever before. As one of only seven combined Goodwill Easter Seals agencies in the United States, we provide a broad range of services affecting infants and youth, working adults, seniors and the community.
