Our mission is to empower adults 55 years and older from diverse communities - along with their families - with the information and resources to address health and long-term care needs. AMSS is pleased to partner with Montgomery County health and Long-term care agencies, Islamic Centers. Working with these organizations, we have identified and trained Long-term Care Outreach Ambassadors that represent the county's diverse communities. The Ambassador's mission is to identify isolated seniors and their caregivers and connect them with available resources. The American Muslim Senior Society is a 501(c)(3)
Our Programs and Events
This year was a busy one for AMSS. We conducted trainings for our Ambassadors who will serve to bring health and long-term care information to older adults and their caregivers. From January through April we held trainings on the topics of Caregiving, Memory Loss and Dementia/Alzheimer's Disease, Health and Wellness, and Planning for the Inevitable. In May we held our Inaugural Event at which we celebrated the graduation of our first class of Ambassadors, received a Proclamation from Montgomery County and gave thanks to our community of supporters. And finally in December, we finished the last of our Community Dialogues at which we identified the priority issues for seniors and caregivers in our community in order to develop solutions and programs to most effectively meet those needs.
