Union-Snyder County Senior Centers: We are Still Here
It has surely been a challenging year for our Union-Snyder Agency on Aging, Inc. senior centers due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We had to close our senior center doors from March 2020 through June 2020, but were able to re-open our doors from July 2020 through most of November 2020. During the time that we re-opened things looked very different, but it was wonderful to be able to welcome our seniors back to their center homes.
Unfortunately COVID-19 cases began to rise again this fall and we had to close our doors just prior to Thanksgiving. It was our greatest hope that we would be able to re-open again in January but the virus had other plans.
Even though our doors are closed, our senior center managers are continuing to work and be present at the centers each day. They are reaching out to provide telephone reassurance and assistance to senior center participants, provide resources to those who call in, connecting folks to services that may help them, and are also keeping the buildings in tip-top shape for when we can re-open again.
Our centers are valuable resources and second homes to many. We miss our seniors and look forward to the day when our doors can open again. Stay safe and please know that even though things are very different right now……..we are still here and plan to continue to be here.
