‘Support Our Senior Citizens’ Event Begins Saturday

A special “Support Our Senior Citizens” fundraiser is being held to raise funds for the Chautauqua Adult Day Care Centers Inc. Scholarship Fund. The Ruby Tuesday Community GiveBack program will be donating 20 percent of sales at the restaurant located at 300 E. Fairmount Ave. in Lakewood on Feb. 16-18 to the agency. These funds will help older adults be able to attend the Senior Day Programs offered by the agency.

Chautauqua Adult Day Care Centers Inc., a United Way agency, offers senior day programs for adults 60 years of age and older who live in community. The centers provide socialization and offer many opportunities for persons to participate in activities during the day in a caring friendly atmosphere. Senior Day Programs provide supportive staff, a secure group setting, supervision, meals, social work services, recreation and companionship. In addition, the agency has a “Saturday Program” in Jamestown that focuses on participants being very involved in attending local events and outdoor recreation every week as well as eating home-cooked meals.

The sites provide breakfast, snack and a hot noontime meal for participants. There is also a Community Recreation Program that helps persons participate in outings in the community and the sites offer pet therapy, ceramics, music programs, arts and crafts and much more on an ongoing basis.
