Do you, or someone you know, live alone and have little contact with people? If the answer is yes, the Council on Aging/Telephone Reassurance Program might be right for you. This program is especially for seniors age 60 and better that would like for someone to make phone contact with them Monday through Friday. On these days, a volunteer will call to make sure you are up and okay. If the volunteer does not get an answer, they will notify a contact person who will come check on you. If you are interested in this program or being a volunteer to make calls with this program, please call Senior Center at 704.482.3488.

After the death or divorce of a spouse, one deals not only with personal bereavement, but also with new dilemmas in almost every aspect of life.

Employment, financial and legal affairs, housing arrangements, and even meal preparation are all situations that present new challenges for both the men and women.

In handling these altered circumstances, many people around the country are finding an important source of support and guidance in voluntary support programs, which put them in touch with others who have themselves, experienced similar situations.

The Cleveland County Council on Aging/Senior Center has a Ladies Support Group for 55 years of age or older. These groups provide a variety of programs that deal with such topics as caring for your car, depression, cooking for one, self-protection and health information. It is a great way to learn new things and socialize with people in your community.

Coping with life after the death or divorce of a loved one becomes even more difficult as one realizes and deals with unfamiliar activities and loneliness. We welcome you to come and experience the camaraderie with this wonderful group of ladies. They meet monthly for educational, social and recreation events. The Ladies Support Group meets the second Tuesday of each month at the Senior Center.

For further information please call Senior Center at 704-482-3488.
