We are Indiana’s Area 11 Agency on Aging and have served the residents of Bartholomew, Brown, Decatur, Jackson and Jennings counties for 33 years. Life changes with age and disability. Our goals are to help people discover their own strengths and enable them to maximize their independence by living better, healthier lives on their own terms. In addition to addressing elder issues, Thrive Alliance sponsors other programs that provide essential services for individuals of all ages. For example, you will find such diverse programs as Foster Grandparents, First Steps Early Intervention, and Legal Services Long-Term Care Ombudsman under our umbrella. We work together so that you can find what you need now and for the future.

Mission: We help individuals access resources that improve their lives and build stronger communities.

Each year, thousands of educators, caregivers, health and aging professionals, and older adults across the country focus their efforts on one goal: preventing falls. That’s why Thrive Alliance is partnering with the National Council on Aging (NCOA) and the Falls Free® Initiative to celebrate Falls Prevention Awareness Week, September 21 through September 25. This year’s activities will be shared virtually via the Thrive Alliance page and a special website: https://thrive-alliance.org/fallprevention/

Falls are a leading cause of injury for people aged 65 and older, but they are not an inevitable part of aging. There are proven ways to prevent them. Throughout Fall Prevention Awareness Week, Thrive Alliance will feature various interactive videos, tips and educational sessions to help seniors learn ways to prevent falls. The activities will kick off with a Facebook Live event beginning at Noon., Monday, September 21.

“If fall prevention is not something that you’re thinking about now, I promise there is someone in your life who’s worried about it,” said Shelby Eggers, Healthcare Integrations and Community Education Manager for Thrive Alliance. “This kind of education can change a community, and that’s why we’re proud to support Falls Prevention Awareness Day as part of our year-round commitment to supporting older adults in Bartholomew County.”
