Woo wee it is winter! I don’t know if I was ready or not but it is here. With that being said, I would like to remind everyone that there are a few ways that we will try to inform seniors of delays or closures at Shelby Senior Services. We will look at weather to determine the best time for our seniors to be able to come in for programming for their safety. We will post the information on WRTV, WTHR, Giant FM, and Facebook. You are more than welcome to call us at 317-398-0127 to see what time we are open for you to come in and enjoy yourself at the scheduled activities. We are committed to being open and providing scheduled activities and programming at all the centers if the weather cooperates. We do look to guidance from the school systems. If schools are on a 2-hour delay or closed due to weather, we will follow suit. When the temperatures are cold and windchill is so low, it is dangerous to be out. The time for frostbite to set in is very critical for seniors, as well as everyone else. Please be mindful if you have to be outside for any period of time and bundle up. Some of the signs of frostbite are feelings of pins and needles, reduced sensitivity to touch, and stinging sensation. Your skin could be blue from poor circulation, stinging, or redness to name a few. Please be aware of how you are feeling and try to not be outside very long. We will hopefully get through this winter without any issues and I am for one looking forward to the spring. It cannot come soon enough!
