Lunch and Learn

Did you ever wonder what kind of information you should share on the telephone?

Did you know you should have a code word that insures you are speaking with a grandchild or another loved one?

How about safety at home?  Should you answer the door if you are not expecting someone?

Should you have area rugs and scatter rugs? What about the safety of extension cords and their placement?

These are just a few of the questions Jay Kiley from Synergy HomeCare will address when he presents Silly Things Seniors Do on Wednesday, Nov. 29, at noon in the senior center café. It promises to be a fun, informative and interactive presentation.  You will walk away with helpful tips and information.  A complimentary lunch will be provided by Synergy HomeCare. RSVP: 203-834-6240.
