The Senior Center is easily accessed off I-95 at the Palm Bay Road exit. Community members will be able to sign up as volunteers to make friendly visits. No experience is required.
The Palm Bay Police Department will provide the Level 2 Background check and training for those eligible to help.
The public is welcome to attend to learn more about community services and programs available for seniors and others at risk in the community.
Information will be available from Brevard County TRIAD, Project Lifesaver, Vial of Life, elder crime prevention, safe banking and internet safety.
SALT Councils are a community outreach program of the Brevard County TRIAD, a partnership between the State Attorney’s Office, Local Law Enforcement and the Sheriff’s Office.
The SALT Council helps the local departments connect with and develop a relationship with the seniors in their cities and towns.
It is a better way for the community to assist its seniors trying to age in place in a safe and secure manner. Weekly checks help identify any issues or needs that are being overlooked.
