Our loan closet offers medical supplies such as walkers, wheelchairs, canes, toilet risers, and incontinence supplies to our clients and the community free of charge. Please call for availability and arrange a time to collect loan closet materials.

A Matter of Balance
Matter of Balance (MOB) emphasizes practical strategies to reduce fear of falling and increase activity levels. Participants learn to view falls and fear of falling as controllable, set realistic goals to increase activity, change their environment to reduce fall risk factors, and exercise to increase strength and balance. This is a free 8-session class, offered 4 times per year. Contact the Senior Center to sign up for the next class.
Supplemental Services are offered to individuals on our program and include lawn care, snow removal, and small home modifications, such as repairing stairs, adding ramps, or installing safety bars.
We offer personal care assistance to individuals in our program. Baths are given once or twice a week at the home by a Registered Nurse (RN) or Certified Nurse’s Assistance (CNA). Contact the Senior Center for more information.
