We Want To Know What You Think! Take the ADS Community Survey
What challenges do you think you’ll have as you get older? Will you be able to live independently in your current home or a home of your choice? How do you prefer to get information about services and community resources? These are similar to the questions that Aging and Disability Services (ADS)—the Area Agency on Aging for Seattle & King County—asks in a new community survey. You can help Aging and Disability Services by taking the survey and then sharing the link with family, friends, and neighbors.
ADS wants to hear from residents throughout King County who are age 18+, not just older adults or people already using their services. They want to hear from people living in rural, suburban, and urban areas, and from all backgrounds.
Survey results will help ADS develop its next four-year plan, which could include new programs and services, and also help market services such as Community Living Connections, which provides free information and local referrals for anyone with questions about aging or disability issues.
The community survey is available at www.surveymonkey.com/r/V5WKDF8 until the end of July. For alternative formats or other languages, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. Please share wherever you can!

Hand Drumming Fun for Seniors
Photo provided by LaDrumma
Simone will supply hand drums (drums that sit on the floor between your legs. They are hit with hands, not sticks). You will be shown how to hold the drum and taught two simple strokes. Before you know it, you’ll be playing a hot little rhythm!
Drumming is a wonderful way to strengthen muscles, improve coordination and sharpen memory, all the while playing the rhythms you love to dance to.
Simone LaDrumma created Drumming & The Holistic Expression of Rhythm, a method of feeling rhythm rather than reading or counting it, in 1991. Since then she has brought the magic of rhythmic expression to thousands of folks of every age, gender, and level of expertise around the world.
