The Cleveland Heights Senior Activity Center, located in the CH Community Center at 1 Monticello Blvd., offers a wide variety of programming for Cleveland Heights residents 60 and older, and 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 Cleveland Heights City Hall, local libraries, the community center and online at www.clevelandheights.com.

New this spring is CARE (Communities Assisting Residential Elderly), a collaborative effort of representatives from Cleveland Heights, Highland Heights, Lyndhurst, Maple Heights, Mayfield Heights, Mayfield Village, Solon and South Euclid. CARE was awarded a second round of funding through the Senior Center Innovation Grant awarded by the Cuyahoga County Division of Senior and Adult Services through the Health & Human Services Levy, which provided the initial planning funds.

Older residents of the participating communities will be able to apply for membership in this program, which emphasizes safety and independence for older adults within their home.

The program is designed to improve the safety of older adults by providing access to interior and exterior home maintenance, minor home repairs, and home safety guidance.

Coming in April, Radio Hour will mix drama, storytelling, creative writing and sound effect, with the goal of recreating a one-hour radio show. Join Jan Bruml and Drinda Kiner, lifelong participants in the dramatic arts, on Wednesdays, 1:30–3 p.m., beginning April 12.
