Now offered via telephone. Senior Resources is now offering three different Free Live Well Telephone Workshops for area adults and their caregivers: Chronic Pain Self-Management, Diabetes Self-Management, Chronic Pain Self-Management. No other technology than a phone is needed for participants to connect for one hour weekly for six weeks to a trained Live Well leader who facilitates the sessions. In these weekly interactive calls, the leader reviews material and the group explores different self management tools such as action planning, problem solving, decision making, communication, healthy eating, physical activity and planning for the future. Workshops are limited to six adults. For more information call Senior Resources at 860-887-3561 ext 127 and ask to speak to Lori.
I feel like we’ve been here before and I was so hopeful that this year we might be able to return to normalcy for the tax program. No, not so. Once again, we will not be holding the Tax Assistance program at the Preston Senior Center this coming year. Yes, COVID-19 is the cause of the cancellation plus our facility isn’t large enough to safely accommodate each person having their income taxes prepared. Once again, you will be directed to the Rose City Senior Center in Norwich to schedule an appointment to have your taxes completed. Their phone number is 860-889-5960. we are hopeful that sometime in the very near future that our good friends from AARP will be manning the Preston site. In addition to having an opportunity to visit with all our Preston neighbors having their taxes done for free, we miss the volunteers immensely!
A special thank you to all in attendance at our December 14th Pot Luck Club Luncheon. The food was delicious and plentiful. Great entertainment by Lenny Domina (and signers). Thanks to the great team of volunteers who were our wait staff and food servers including Cathy Brosnan, Maureen Domina, Jessy Walden and Amy Brosnan. Lenny Ruta was the turkey carver for the day and he didn’t leave one morsel of meal on the carcass, great job Lenny. Camaraderie was alive and well on this day, new friends and old shared memories. Did I mention that the wait staff and food servers were also the clean-up crew? Yeah team from the dishwasher lady!
