From the Director – December 2022
As we enter the winter months, the county is still at medium risk of Covid. We need to be safe during the holidays and into 2023. We are still requiring masks to be worn indoors at the Center. Please be mindful of everyone’s health.
WooHoo!! We did receive a grant from the Ann Arbor Area Community Foundation and Blue Cross, Blue Shield of Michigan Foundation to continue our work with intergenerational activities. This will not take away any of our senior programming. It will actually enhance the programs we have now. Soon we will be open longer hours. This will allow us to add programs that will include youth and older adults. With this grant we will also be able to hire another staff member to help with our work load. We will be looking for someone that will start at part time and be willing to move to full time at some point. This will also bring new people into the Center. I look forward to seeing the gradual changes that will happen throughout the year.
During covid we stopped the Memory Cafe to keep everyone safe. We would like to restart it. If you know of anyone that is living with memory issues please let them know about this program. It is a social time for those living with memory loss and their caregivers. We talk, sing, dance, make art and tell stories. It is a time that everyone can get support for the challenges they face.
Feel free to call me if you have any questions. – Monica
