This program will be held at the Montville Senior Center once again. We have a wonderful Podiatrist, Dr. Thomas Walter, come to our Center once a month to perform routine foot care. Not a service normally covered by Medicare unless you are a Diabetic, Dr. Walter will perform routine foot care for a cost less than a regular office visit. Seniors will be let into building during appointment time only, wait time will be outside. This Program is free to Montville seniors. Funding for the program is provided by Title III funds made available through the Area Agency on Aging and the Town of Montville. We ask for a $6.00 donation request per the Grant, not required for the service. Call Kathie for details and date of next visit.
Facilitated by UCFS and our Better Health Clinician, Kendra, we have a once a week Grief Support Group at the Center on Fridays from 3:00 – 4:00 PM. Presently this is done through phone calls / zoom though we hope to be back in person soon! 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. Come and 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, no need to sign up, just come and join us in the Library at the Center. No need to speak in the group if you are not comfortable, you will still take away ways to cope with loss!
This program is still on hold, we will inform everyone when it resumes. Health Clinic at the Senior Center is on Tuesdays from 9:00 – 11:00 a.m. We have a visiting nurse come to the Center to perform blood pressure, blood sugar, and anemia screenings every week. All services at the Clinic are FREE – donation box is available for contributions. Call Kathie @ 848-0422 for details.
