Fillmore Senior Center News

The Savvy Care Giver Class was a terrific success. Everyone enjoyed the class and thought it was very helpful. We are now starting a Caregiver Support Group. Caregiver Support Groups are designed to provide emotional, educational and social support for caregivers through regularly scheduled meetings. They help participants develop methods and skills to solve problems. The groups encourage caregivers to maintain their own personal, physical and emotional health, as well as optimally care for the person with dementia. Call us and let us know if you would like us to repeat the “Savvy Care Giver” class for those who missed out, If there is enough interest, we will schedule another session. 524-4533 To Join the support group call 555-555-5555 or 1-800-272-3900 or visit us at The Fillmore Senior Centers Support group is scheduled for the 2nd & 4th Mondays each month from 9:00 – 10:30 A.M.

AARP Driver Safety Class April 16 & April 19. from 9-1pm The two, 4-hour classes are sponsored by AARP. The class is designed to help individuals tune up their driving skills and refresh all the rules of the road. This is especially handy if your drivers license is about to expire and you might have to take the written test again. It’s surprising how many rules we have actually forgotten and just gotten away with. The class fee is $12 for AARP member and $14 for non-members. Please, call and let us know your coming 524-4533
