News Release for the Week of February 2, 2015

There are many services available at the Enfield Senior Center. Please take advantage of the wonderful professionals who volunteer their time to help with concerns you may have.
Patty O’Brian from the Alzheimer’s Association visits the Senior Center every month to talk, refer and counsel anyone with Alzheimer’s or a family member. We have lawyers, financial professionals and real estate professionals who will offer advice at no cost. If you have Medicare questions, a CHOICES counselor is available every Friday. Please schedule an appointment by calling the Senior Center office for anyone of these valuable and free services.

Did you know that the Senior Center lends medical equipment? You can pick up a walker, shower chair, bath transfer bench and many other donated pieces of equipment at no charge.
