Sep 27, 2022


Welcome to the Regency Square Care Center news page, where we are proud to share our involvement in promoting helmet safety in collaboration with On With Life and the Ankeny Police. As a leading provider of geriatric and aging care services, we are committed to the overall health and well-being of seniors in our community. In this article, we will explore the partnership and the initiatives taken to ensure helmet usage among individuals of all ages.

Helmet Safety and Importance

Helmets play a crucial role in safeguarding individuals from head injuries, especially during activities that pose potential risks. Whether it's cycling, motorcycling, skateboarding, or engaging in other sports, wearing a helmet significantly reduces the risk of severe head trauma and brain injuries. It is vital to educate people about the importance of wearing helmets and actively promote their usage across all age groups.

Collaboration between On With Life and Ankeny Police

The collaboration between On With Life, a renowned healthcare organization specializing in brain injury rehabilitation, and the Ankeny Police has brought about a significant positive change in promoting helmet safety. Recognizing the importance of raising awareness about this issue, they have joined forces to implement various educational programs and community outreach initiatives.

Education and Outreach Programs

Through their partnership, On With Life and Ankeny Police have conducted several helmet safety workshops, seminars, and demonstrations in schools, community centers, and public events. These programs aim to educate individuals of all ages about the importance of wearing helmets, the proper way to wear them, and the relevant safety standards to look for when purchasing a helmet.

Emphasizing Helmet Safety Among Seniors

While helmet safety is often associated with younger individuals, it is essential to raise awareness among seniors as well. Many seniors engage in recreational activities that may require helmet usage, such as cycling or participating in organized sports. By working with the Ankeny Police, On With Life, and local senior centers, Regency Square Care Center actively provides education and resources to ensure older adults understand the importance of helmet safety and have access to properly fitting helmets.

Community Partnerships and Events

On With Life, the Ankeny Police, and Regency Square Care Center actively seek alliances with local businesses, organizations, and event organizers to create a community-wide culture of helmet safety. By collaborating with bike shops, sporting goods stores, and recreational clubs, they aim to promote helmet safety as a norm and provide discounts or incentives for purchasing helmets.

Advocacy and Policy Development

In addition to educational initiatives, the partnership actively advocates for policies that support helmet safety. Together, they work with local government representatives, community leaders, and organizations to develop and implement regulations and laws that prioritize helmet usage, especially in activities where head injuries are common.


The partnership between On With Life, the Ankeny Police, and Regency Square Care Center demonstrates a shared commitment to promoting helmet safety in the Ankeny community. Through various educational programs, community partnerships, and advocacy efforts, they strive to raise awareness, provide resources, and ensure the well-being of individuals of all ages. Together, we can create a safer and healthier environment for everyone. Remember, your safety starts with wearing a helmet!
