A.A.R.P. Driver Education Class
The Senior Center hosts the AARP Driver Safety Program, which has helped millions of drivers remain safe on today's roads and save money on insurance premiums. The 6-hour classroom course is structured in one day and is designed to help you update your driving knowledge, sharpen your driving skills, compensate for normal age-related physical changes, reduce your traffic violations, crashes, and chances for injuries, and find answers to questions you have probably wondered about when faced with a difficult road situation. Most drivers qualify for an automobile insurance premium reduction or discount. This class has a nominal fee paid directly to AARP.
Blood Pressure Screenings
The Senior Center hosts Blood Pressure Screenings on (usually) the 2nd Wednesday of the month from 9:30 a.m - 11:30 a.m. through the Fair Lawn Health Department in partnership with the Health Awareness Regional Program at Hackensack Meridian Health. Get your life back on track and learn to live a healthy lifestyle! The program is FREE, led by a registered nurse, and includes:
- Blood pressure assessment
- Body mass index measurement
- Diabetes risk assessment
- Stress management
- Health education
- Community resources
The Bergen County Van is available after lunch on Thursdays to go food shopping from the Senior Center and travel to the Shop Rite on River Road in Fair Lawn. The service is free of charge and will return everyone to his or her doorstep afterwards. Registration with Bergen County Transportation in advance is necessary. Please call the Senior Center office for more details.
Thursday @ 1:00 p.m.
Fair Lawn is lucky to have TWO kinds of FREE transportation. The Fair Lawn Mini Bus, run by the Fair Lawn Health Department, can be reached by calling (201) 794-5327. Follow this link for more information about the Borough's Mini Bus. Currently, they are running on limited days and hours due to Covid-19.
Second, the Bergen County Community Transportation offers free rides back and forth to the Senior Center and also to medical appointments. Please call the Senior Center directly for reservations to and from the Center only. Contact Community Transportation for medical transport or any other services at (201) 368-5955 or visit the Bergen County Community Transportation website. Currently, they are running medical appointments only due to Covid. We hope FLSC-direct transportation will resume in the near future.
During inclement weather, transportation may not be available.
