CH Senior Center News
The Cleveland Heights Senior Activity Center (SAC), located in the CH Community Center at 1 Monticello Blvd., offers a variety of programming for those 60 and older. A complete schedule of programs is published in the community center’s newsletter, and available online at www.clevelandheights.com.
The city of Cleveland Heights offers social work services to its senior residents through the Cleveland Heights Office on Aging. Two part-time social workers are available to answer questions and offer guidance on a wide variety of topics.
The social workers have information and can connect seniors to services to make life more manageable. Services include Meals on Wheels, for those needing assistance with meal preparation; van transportation, for those needing help getting to the doctor or the grocery store; and senior housing options, for those who may be ready to downsize but want to remain in the Heights.
Family and friends of senior Cleveland Heights residents can also call with questions and concerns. To contact a CH Office on Aging social worker, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com, or call 216-691-7377 to make an appointment.
SAC membership is $5 for Cleveland Heights residents. To sign up, bring a recent piece of mail (such as a bill) and a photo ID.
