Fillmore Senior Center News

Our Floor Renovation is complete and our floors are beautiful again. We look forward to seeing everyone back at the Senior Center now that kids & grandkids are back in school & hopefully all vacationers have returned well rested. Although we had hoped to be open the full week, that is Monday through Friday starting September, we have decided to stay closed on Fridays till the first of October. All our classes are still available, Monday through Thursday. Remember you don’t have to be 60 to participate in the activities, we welcome 50 plus as long as it doesn’t prevent any of our older seniors from our classes due to, too many in a class. October is going to be very busy!

Our Next Alzheimer’s & Dementia Caregiver Support Group will meet on September 10th. in the Senior Center Library from 9:00 – 10:30 A.M. We had a really great turn out last time (August 13th.). I do a little care giving myself after I’ve finished here at the center so I can relate, to some degree, the difficulties that you deal with. I can imagine it is even harder when it is a friend or family member, day to day, hour to hour. That’s why I want to encourage and express how important it is for those giving care to be here regularly. The more you come, the more the Alzheimer’s Association will come and be here to help you get the most out of the support group. So, No excuses, see you on the 10th. The coffee is Hot & the Starbucks pastries are free…

Mark your Calendars for Friday, October 5th. Hi-Cap will be here from 9-10:30 discussing what changes will be coming up with Medicare for 2013. and again on Oct. 19 as a “One-Stop” Helping you fill out form.
