Health and Wellness Program- Monday though Friday Videos

We will continue to providing our Health &
Wellness videos for those interested in staying active and healthy from home. The program is called COOPED UP WITH CAITLIN and videos are provided Monday – Friday and show you how to keep moving safely in your home! Working on different muscle groups, different areas of the body, etc.
the videos will show you how to move
throughout the home, using different furniture or household items to hold or hold on to
while performing exercises to help keep your
muscles and blood moving and flowing!

Grief Support Group

Facilitated by UCFS and our Better Health
Clinician, we have a once a week Grief Support Group. We are providing this service in
person once again. This is a free program.
Are you sad or suffering the loss of a loved
one? Spouse, child, friend, or pet? Sometimes it is very difficult to deal with such
loss. Join this confidential and private grief
support group and learn coping techniques
and ways to help you deal with your loss.
Support group is on-going, please sign up by
calling the office at #860-848-0422. No need
to speak in the group if you are not comfortable, you will still take away ways to cope
with loss!

We are Open! Here are the Updates!

The Montville Senior Center is once again open to all of our
Montville Seniors (60+) for programs, activities, and services. While not all of the
programs have started back up as yet, we do have many going and most importantly, our seniors are welcome to come in, visit, and socialize once again! We have
safety measures in place and ask everyone to abide by them. We have a registration
sign in at the front office for everyone entering the building. We ask that people are
respectful of others and maintain a proper social distance. If you are not vaccinated, we request that you wear a mask. We also ask that if you are not feeling well,
please stay home until feeling better.
I would like to give a BIG THANK YOU to my TEAM—I am very proud of my
staff and special volunteers! We have been extremely busy during the entire pandemic. We have provided services over the phone, out in the parking lot through
heat waves, freezing rain and snow, and at senior’s and client’s homes. We never
missed a day and provided many of our regular services along with new ones!
We are offering many of the activities and programs we have offered in the past,
along with some new ones coming up soon. We do have a few instructors who will
not be coming back to us, unfortunately, though we will look for instructors for
those programs.
We will hopefully be able to offer all of the programs and services we provide at the
Center via ZOOM as well! In an effort to ensure that our seniors who are homebound, whether temporary or permanently, have access to and receive the benefits
of participating in our classes—we are working on a program to provide them all at
home. Please stay tuned for more information on this…………
Lastly, welcome back everyone! I am so very happy to see everyone back in person, it has been way too long and we have missed you all so very much!
