Senior Dining Program-
The reapplication month for the program is in July. Application will be at your local senior center, senior housing, or on our website. If you are on the program currently or on the waiting list, you will receive an application in the mail. Due to limited funding, not everyone will be put on the new program year that starts October 2015. It is not a first come, first serve program and eligibility is not based on income. However, priority will be given to those that are over 75, minority, living alone, low income, and at nutrition risk. You must be 60 to apply. Be sure to follow instructions. If you fill out an application after July you will automatically be placed on a waiting list.
If you have any questions, please call our Community Resource Center at 1-800-653-7723.
Eight out of ten senior drivers age 65 and older take medications on a regular basis. And despite high prescription and over-the-counter medication use, almost half of senior drivers using medications have never talked with their health care providers about how the drugs might affect their safe driving abilities.
AAA3's Roadwise Rx is an online tool that generates personalized feedback about how these interactions between prescription and over-the-counter medicines and herbal supplements can impact safety behind the wheel, said AAA3's Director of Traffic Safety Advocacy, Jake Nelson.
Nelson added Drivers are encouraged to discuss the confidential results with their doctor or pharmacist to learn how to mitigate possible crash risks.
