Here we are and we find ourselves in September once again. September is Senior Center month and the slogan this year is Senior Centers: Delivering Vital Connections. This rings true for our center as well through the pandemic this year. We have tried many different ways to reach the people that are 60+ in Shelby County through these last several months and I a certain will be many more months that are ahead of us. We are doing virtual programs and activities through Facebook, You Tube, and Zoom. We have made over 8,000 phone calls to seniors through this time and continue to make phone calls to people to make sure if they need anything or if we can help them in any way.
We have tried to get our any information about scams that we have available due to the scammers are finding new and tricky ways to try to scam people and expecially people over 60 sometimes make easy targets they feel. We keep tell everyone not to give out personal information. We keep trying to get the word out that someone such as Medicare, Social Security or your bank will not call you, email you or mail you a letter asking for personal information. They would already have this information. Please be mindful of anyone who is asking for your personal information. Scams come in many different forms these days. If you are questioning them and what they are asking please side on the side of caution.
If you have questions or need services please call us at 317-398-0127 or call and drop by 1504 S Harrison St, Shelbyville.
