There will be flu shots given at the Citizen’s Center on October 14th from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. You will need a copy of your Medicare card with you.

We were so glad to have Pat and Charlotte Simpson from the Nemo area to visit the Center. Much to our delight, Pat is a “42” player. He doesn’t know what he’s getting into. What is it about Glen Rose and “42”?

If you have questions pertaining to re-enrolling in Medicare and dropping your Medicare Replacement insurance call the Center at 897-2139. We have the information you will need to complete this change over. Maggie Powell from Guardian Health Care and Bridgett Knap from the hospital gave a very informative program on this issue. Seniors only have the months of November and December to make this change.

On Wednesday, September 24, at 1:00 p.m. there will be a free workshop in the Paluxy room at the Citizen’s Center entitled Understanding Memory Loss. The Alzheimer’s Association will present the program. The topics will include: determine when memory loss is a warning sign; recognize the stages of Alzheimer’s disease; understand the steps to getting a diagnosis; and learn about resources to improve quality of life. Please call 817-336-4949 or 1-800-272-3900 to pre-register.
