We (Gateway Community Services Inc., Jacksonville)are planning puppet presentation for our seniors, who loves our presentations with the puppets. We have learned that including the puppets help in relaying the FCCG message about the dangers of compulsive gambling. We have included our SAGES' Red Bag program with the Gambling presentation.

The Red Bag is a program that allow seniors to list all their medicines on a 5 x 7 card and place the actual medicines in the bag. When they take their red bag to their medical doctor or hospital, it helps the doctors to know exactly what medicine the patient has and help prevent adverse reactions they may occur with certain medicines. In addition, this gives the doctor a "bird's-eye" view of the amount of medicine the senior is taking.
