Kim’s Korner May 2018
May is Older Americans Month. We at Shelby Senior Services would like to celebrate SENIORS!!!
Baby Boomers are defined as people who were born between 1946-1964. By 2030, about one in five Americans will be older than 65. Shelby County has a growing number of seniors over 55 and we are working to be ready for them. They are going to want different activities, volunteer opportunities and learning chances than the previous older adults. Shelby Senior Services is looking forward to come up with different opportunities for Baby Boomers to find what they are looking for within our doors.
We have many opportunities for people 55+ to come and participate in diverse activities. We have French, German, Sign Language Classes and Computer Classes just to name a few of our newer offerings. We have tried to incorporate a great variety of programs, classes and activities for people to participate in. We are also offering more classes to get people moving! We have Tia Chi, Tia Chi Alumni, Walk with Ease, Chair Volleyball, Line Dancing, etc. We also have Caregiver Café, and several support groups available.
Many of our Baby Boomers still are working and want to do things in the evenings. Shelby Senior Services does have some activities in the evening; check The Horizon Newsletter to see what is available. We offer many opportunities to volunteer that fill the need for productive, meaningful service.
The Horizon Center and Senior Centers in Waldron, Morristown and Fairland provide meaningful activities that address body, mind and soul. Please look to Shelby Senior Services for your needs. Call us at 317-398-0127, email us at www.shelbyseniorservices.org, or see us on Facebook. If we don’t have what you’re looking for, we welcome any suggestions you may have.
