Drug and Alcohol Survey 

In collaboration with the Montgomery County Office of Drug and Alcohol, we are currently conducting a survey throughout our county regarding drug and alcohol usage among seniors and their knowledge of these substances. We encourage all seniors over age 60 to participate in this survey. This survey is anonymous.

Watching Out For Us

This program reviews skills for safe walking. It's about 30 minutes and is interactive for the participants. The community program development staff is happy to present this program to any group of seniors in the community. This is an extremely important program for safety.

Code Red 

The Montgomery County Commissioners, on the advice of the Montgomery County Department of Public Safety, will call a Code Red Hot Weather Health Warning for Montgomery County based on a review of forecasts from the National Weather Service.

A Code Red Hot Weather Health Warning is issued in anticipation of an oppressively hot air mass with a heat index of 100ºF or greater. Such conditions have been associated with excess mortality, and residents should take precautions to prevent heat-related stress and exhaustion.

Those especially at risk are very young children, elderly adults, and people with chronic medical conditions and/or taking certain medications. Friends, relatives, or neighbors should check on people who may be at risk.

The Community Program Development unit has developed a program called #CheckOnASenior. We encourage all residents to check on their senior friends, relatives, and neighbors. We are happy to drop off flyers and postcards at any place to be distributed within the County or you can download and print yourself:

Postcard (5 1/2 x 4 1/2)
Handout (4 1/4 x 5 1/2 - 2 per page)
Poster (18" x 24")
