All senior centers are scheduled to re-open after the first of the year. This decision was made due to all counties in our district still in red or orange status. As well as congregate staff being off due to the upcoming holidays.
All senior centers will be closed –Thanksgiving – Thursday November 25th and Friday November 26thChristmas – Thursday December 23rd, Friday December 24th, and Monday December 27thNew Year’s – Friday December 31st
For November we mailed 1300 vouchers to 130 Meade County clients. In October we served 4,689 meals to 322 clients. From July 1 – October 31, 2021, we served 19,296 meals to 504 clients.
Open enrollment started October 15th and will end on December 7th. All senior center site directors have been working with the Lincoln Trail Area Development District’s State Health Insurance Assistance Program also known as SHIP, to help our clients get the information they need to ensure they have the best policy for them. If you know of someone who could benefit from speaking to one of their trusted representatives, please call 270-769-8609 or 270-737-0669.
We will continue to serve meals to the senior citizen population via drive thru until our re-opening on January 3rd. If you know someone 60 years old or older in need of a hot, nutritious meal please refer them to their local senior citizen’s center.
