People continue to be surprised on what is still happening in Senior Centers as we continue dealing with COVID and all of those restrictions.
Well first off, the Senior Center Staff is still working. They are just as helpful as they were when you were there. They miss you, too!! They cannot wait for you to come in those doors!
The staff is just as committed to serving you – it’s just that things are different
The Senior Center phone lines are manned, and you can still get your questions answered. Call and let them know what you need help with.
You can still sign up for Meals on Wheels, Fuel Assistance, Elderly & Totally Disabled Tax Relief Program, AARP income tax assistance, and other programs. Or get the information on how you can apply.
You can find out which of these programs you are eligible for. Plus, any others you might be able to take advantage of.
You can get Meals on Wheels delivered to your home.
Most Senior Centers are still providing transportation.
Many Senior Centers have meals you can order and pick-up curbside.
If your local Senior Center is not distributing food, they can tell you where your closest location is.
There are lots of virtual and Zoom classes available. The beauty of those is that you can attend events that are well out of your area. There is no need to travel to a Senior Center across the state. Just register and login on the day and time the event is happening.
SeniorCenterCt.org has a Zoom calendar on the main landing page. Just click on the Zoom Calendar icon and you’ll find any number of things you can do.
Here is an example of some of the virtual and Zoom classes that you might find: Tai Chi, Genealogy, Sing Along, Trivia, lectures on a number of topics, paint night, bingo and more!!
So, call your Senior Center and see if you can pick up jigsaw puzzles, books from the Senior Center Library, or maybe even craft kits. Who knows, give them a call, and ask!!
So even though, you might have thought your Senior Center is CLOSED, it’s not really…. It’s just that the public cannot go into the building.
