A MESSAGE FROM YOUR SENIOR SERVICE STAFF
We miss you! We hope that you and your family have been well! Please view this month’s virtual calendar. As things continue to stretch on…we hope the calendar provides a smile!
The staff have remained busy during this time. For the safety of our home delivered clients and volunteers; staff have been doing all meal deliveries each week since April. At the moment we have over 60 clients with that number steadily growing due to the COVID pandemic. In addition; staff have been doing weekly phone checks with Home Deliver clients and regular attendees of the centers. Staff have tackled painting walls of senior buildings, scrubbing floors, answering calls, on-line training’s, cleaning vehicles and providing support to seniors in need…just to name a few!
The Senior Centers will remain closed until the governor announces Phase 3. Opening restrictions and safety measures will be based off of what the governor mandates, local county and staff recommendations.
What will that look like? We do not know yet…information on what changes have been made, programming availability, capacity, etc. will be made available to the public once we have an opening date set in stone. We would love nothing more than to pick up where we left off; however these changes will help ensure the health and safety of our seniors, volunteers and staff.
We also want to say “Thank you!” We greatly appreciate all the support we have received from our community, seniors and fellow staff. The phone calls, cards and emails to say “Hi”, let us know you miss us too!
We look forward to seeing you,
