The Center’s Re-Opening Plan
There’s a lot to consider with re-opening. We know it is going to be different. But even with restrictions or limits, we will be able to address the social isolation that has occurred since March 20th. In general, as we age we are more likely to experience social isolation; adult children move away, health issues can impact abilities and we may experience loss. If these situations occur, they may lead to changes in social activities. However, the pandemic hit all of us fast and furious, taking all our social activities away and leaving many with boredom, apathy, loss of appetite, etc. Re-opening the Center to small outside gatherings will begin this month. Each day, weather permitting, we will welcome small groups (no more than 6 in a group) for outdoor meetings/conversations. Requirements: Sign ups for a group is required. All participants must answer a screening questionnaire.
Scan cards are required so we can track attendance. Be sure to bring yours!
The time limit will be for no more than 1 hour.
Access inside the building will be for emergencies only.
Masks must be worn until you get settled in your seat .
Hand sanitizer will be available for use.
Seats will be sanitized when group disbands.
Participants can bring their own drinks/snacks/lunch.
Calling All Seniors Who Want to Learn How to Zoom! We want to know if you have a computer, I pad, I phone or laptop. Please call the Center and provide your email and device information. The Center will be holding one-on-one instruction on How to Zoom. If you have one of these, we can help you to Zoom so that you can participate in more programming at home. If you have a desk-top computer with a camera, we can help over the phone to get you on the Zoom platform. Simply call the Center at 508-359-3665 to schedule a convenient time. It is easier than you
