A note from Victoria at Central DeKalb Senior Center, with a few highlights that I know you will enjoy!
  • On Thursday, October 29th at 12:30 p.m. in Lobby of CDSC, the Ukulele Society of Decatur will perform, this will be a good time for all! Please join us for lunch too!
  • I am so excited to announce the following Transportation Voucher Program for Seniors in DeKalb County who do not drive, or have no form of transportation. This program is being offered through DeKalb County Office of Senior Affairs, not any other funder. Every Wednesday, from 1:00 p.m. until 4:30 p.m., Ericia Wheeler, a DeKalb County employee, manages the program. She will be at CDSC to sign up seniors and their drivers each Wednesday. As you know, transportation is one of the most needed services for Seniors, and I am thrilled to share this opportunity with you. Please let me know if you are interested in signing up for this program. I look forward to hearing from you.
  • The DRiVE (DeKalb Reimbursement Voucher Program for the Elderly) opens the door to leisure and fun. Use a driver of your choice!
  • Medicare’s Open Enrollment period is October 15 to December 7. ALL people with Medicare can change their Medicare health plan and prescription drug coverage for next year. CDSC will host a presentation on Thursday November 5th, from 10:00 am – 2:00 pm. Please ask Seniors to bring their Medicare card, and the names of their prescriptions. Personalized counseling using the decision tool will be available after the session.

On the left margin, there is a link to their monthly activity schedule, as well as links to a registration form (so they can reach out to eligible residents)  and interest sheet (for letting the senior center know what activities would best serve users). Often, there is also a flyer highlighting special activities. Here is the October special events flyer...
