Services Spotlight-Telephone Reassurance

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 Kathy Cobb at 704.482.3488.


Ladies Support

When: Second Tuesday of Every Month (except Holidays) Time: 11:30AM

Cost: No Charge

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 stuff 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 at 11:30 for lunch and a program.

For further information please call Kathy Cobb at the Senior Center at 704-482-3488

Items Needed for Council on Aging/Senior Center Food Pantry

People in our community would be surprised at the number of families our food pantry serves.

As the cost of living increases, their check doesn’t increase at the same rate so they don’t always have resources to feed their families adequately. That is why the food pantry exists – to aid those who need food, especially on an emergency basis. We want to make sure that our seniors have the food they need to sustain themselves, so we are always seeking donations to help the seniors who use our pantry.

With these bad economic times, the number of people who need the food pantry keeps increasing.

That is why we are always grateful to receive donations of the following items that are always in need: canned meat, canned fruit, fruit juice boxes, canned and bottles, small jars of jelly, macaroni & canned vegetables, small jar of mayonnaise, cooking oil, cereal, breakfast food, small cans of coffee, small boxes of tea, sugar, boxed milk or powder, paper towels, toilet paper.

We are also asking for donations of personal care items. Often, people who need food are also in need of other basic items for their daily personal needs. These times include: razors (men/women), shaving cream, aftershave, deodorant, soap, lotion, tissues, laundry & dish detergent, trash bags, shampoo, toothbrushes and toothpaste, denture tablets and adhesive.

There are numerous opportunities for groups or individuals to help the Pantry. Remember us if you are conducting a food drive. Please contact the Service department.

For more information please call Kathy Cobb or Heather Ledbetter at the Council on Aging/Senior Center at 704-482-3488.
