    The COVID pandemic has certainly changed the ways we do things at our centers.  We have remained open starting with just doing Home Delivered Meals and then added back our 50+ Fit classes when safe with social distancing and extra cleaning protocols.  Next we opened the center to those wanting to use the fitness room, computer lab or play pool by appointment only.  A month ago we invited the seniors who can drive themselves to the center to attend for 2 hours and have lunch with social distancing measures in place.  Many activities are back on the calendar with capacity limits.  Finally we are equipping our buses to bring some seniors to the center on a very small scale.  Starting slow and being very cautious has been our motto as well as being flexible to make necessary changes as needed.

    During this more quiet time, we upgraded our center software where seniors will begin using a more friendly computer monitor check in system and it is going very well.  We are very fortunate to continue to receive necessary funding to sustain our services. We appreciate all of the staff’s support to continue to serve our mission and grateful that we remained healthy thus far.  We look forward to the “new” normal and are planning to offer more virtual opportunities for our seniors at home to keep them engaged. 

    We look forward to the upcoming fall and holiday season.
