Dear Neighbors and Friends,
Now that the calendar has flipped to September, and as nightfall
shrinks the length of each evening, I would offer a few reminders
about this imminent, transitional time of year.
First, students are back in class, and that means school buses are making the rounds
and children are crossing the street from what seems like every direction. We must go
slowly and use extra caution if and when driving: the best start of a school year is a
safe one.
In the middle of September those who observe will begin the High Holy Days of the
Jewish faith from Rosh Hashanah to Yom Kippur. For all who will observe this annual,
solemn period of introspection I wish for you serenity and peace.
The first day of fall, when the earth’s axis is perpendicular to the sun and there are
equal parts darkness and daylight, is coming up September 23. We are all well-advised
to monitor changeable conditions to stay healthy as we lose daylight and the warm
summer weather we’ve enjoyed.
Best wishes for a great September!
Sincerely,
Toni N. Harp
Mayor

Message from Migdalia Castro
Director of Elderly Services
Greetings Friends:
I hope that everyone had a peaceful, yet adventurous summer! As we transition
into the fall and winter seasons, I would like to remind everyone that we are all vulnerable to slipping and falling. Please take the proper precautions to prevent injuries due
to falling. Not only is September 23, 2015 the first day of fall, but it is also the first day
of National Falls Prevention Awareness Day. This year’s theme, Take a Stand to Prevent Falls, will address preventing fall related injuries among persons who are 55
years or older. Included in this issue is an article that outlines, in detail, the health ailments that contribute to falling.

Florence Virtue Homes 50th Anniversary
By Margery Mills
In 1965, the brand new Florence Virtue Homes opened in the Dixwell neighborhood and touted as part of New
Haven’s “model city” urban renewal plan under then Mayor Richard Lee.
On August 13, 2015 the 50th anniversary of the Florence Virtue Homes was celebrated in
grand style. It was “beyond spectacular” said the still highly elated Office Manager, Peter Gadsby, and everyone “had a
blast.” Ella Smith, anniversary committee chair, echoed those sentiments and remarked, “the people really enjoyed it.”
They must have as it was estimated that close to 400 people attended including Mayor Toni Harp, Senator Gary HolderWinfield and Alder Brenda Foskey-Cyrus. Citations and proclamations from the Mayor, the Board of Alders, and from the
State of Connecticut General Assembly were presented as well as remarks sent from Governor Malloy, Congresswoman
Rosa DeLauro and Senator Richard Blumenthal.
Ella Smith served as the Organizing Committee Chair along with Mae Gibson Brown, Annie Hudson, Louise Lytle,
Frances Kelly and Alexis Lawrence. Ella and Frances Kelly did a lot of homework at the New Haven Museum and researched the urban renewal era and also on the Florence Virtue Homes.
The Dixwell-Newhallville Senior Center and the Florence Virtue Homes are close neighbors in the Orchard Street
area, and several members of the Senior Center reside there such as Naomi Tisdale, Ella Smith and Inez Gray.
Who was Florence Virtue of whom the homes were named? In the anniversary program write up, it states that
Florence Sinclair Virtue was a Jamaica, West Indies native who relocated to New Haven. Mrs. Virtue was a life-long
member of Dixwell Avenue Congregational Church. She was well known for her lay ministry of caring for the
“hospitalized, the seriously ill and the bed-ridden. She was known by hundreds of people who benefitted from her selfless service.”
“The Dixwell Avenue Congregational Church sponsored the creation of this housing complex which was named
Florence Virtue Homes as a tribute to her many good works for the residents of the Dixwell neighborhood.” A few interesting facts:
Florence Virtue’s 96 year old daughter Winifred Dixon is still living and resides in Hamden.
There are two residents who moved into the new homes in 1965 and still reside there 50 years later. They are
Pearl Chappell-Harris and Sheila Nelson.
It really must be a “great place to live,” as the saying goes.

SEPTEMBER 23 –29 IS FALL PREVENTION AWARENESS WEEK!
COMMON WITH SERIOUS CONSEQUENCES
Falls and fall injuries:
Are more common than strokes and can be just as serious in their
consequences
Are the most preventable cause of needing nursing home placement
Lead to problems with daily activities like dressing, bathing, and walking
around
Among adults 70 years and older:
* 3 in 10 fall each year;
*2 in 10 who need home health care after being in the hospital will fall during the first month after
coming home
*1 in 10 suffer a serious fall injury such as a broken bone or head injury
*5 in 10 have problems getting up without help after they have fallen
Falls cause over 90% of broken hips; only half of those who break their hip will get around like
they did before their broken hip
In the United States, 16 percent of all Emergency Department visits and almost 7 percent of all
hospitalizations are for fall-related injuries
PREVENTABLE
Many of the health problems that increase the chance of falling are known and are treatable.
Common, treatable health problems and hazards include problems with walking or moving
around, medications, foot problems or unsafe footwear, blood pressure dropping too much on getting up, problems seeing, and tripping hazards at home.
The more of these problems an older adult has, the greater the chance of falling.
The good news is that you can decrease the chance of falling by improving these problems. A study
conducted in Connecticut, funded by the National Institute on Aging , found that treating as many of
these problems as possible decreased the likelihood of falling.
THE COMMON HEALTH PROBLEMS FOR FALLING ARE:
Problems walking or moving around
4 or more medications
foot problems, unsafe footwear
blood pressure drops too much on standing up/dizzy
problems with seeing tripping hazards in your home
