CH Senior Center News
The Cleveland Heights Senior Activity Center, located in the CH Community Center at 1 Monticello Blvd., offers a wide variety of programming for CH residents 60 and older. The following programs are among the highlights for November:
Nov. 10 to Dec. 15, 9:30 a.m. to noon, “Diabetes Self-Management Workshop.” This free workshop for people living with type 1 or 2 diabetes covers techniques to deal with the symptoms of diabetes, appropriate exercise, information on healthy eating, appropriate use of medication, and tips on how to work more effectively with health care providers. Participants will make weekly action plans, share experiences, and help solve problems they encounter in creating and carrying out their self-management program. Space is limited and registration is required.
Nov. 10, 12:30 p.m., “We Honor Veterans” is an annual pinning ceremony to honor our senior veterans with a recognition ceremony and lunch. This program is open to non-CH residents, and registration is required. (Let us know the branch of the armed forces in which you served when you make your reservation.)
Remember that this is open enrollment time for 2016 Medicare plans. Schedule an appointment to meet with OSHIIP-trained (Ohio Senior Health Insurance Information Program) Medicare counselors any Wednesday morning, or participate in a day-long counseling event at the senior center on Tuesday, Nov. 17.
The senior center is open Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. A complete schedule of programs is published in the community center’s newsletter, which is available at CH City Hall, local libraries, the community center and online at www.clevelandheights.com.
