From the WCSC Executive Director By Tori McDaniel

A

s I write this, we are 15 days into the new year. I can’t believe another year has come and gone. With the new year has come a bad case of wanderlust and I just can’t seem to shake it. If you have wanderlust like me (the desire to travel) you’ll want to check out the fantastic trips

Betty has planned for this year. She has done a fabulous job planning something for everyone! In June she’s headed to Mount Rushmore, in August you can find her in Colorado Springs, and in October she’ll be in Maine (I bet it’s gorgeous in the fall). If you follow us on Facebook, let

LCCOA, Papa Murphy’s and County Market are providing an opportunity to meet new people and learn about the businesses in our area. LCCOA has had a request for a new game to be played on Monday afternoons at 1 pm. The game is Rummikub. If you are interested contact Flo at 815-288-9236. If you have a set and would be interested in donating it; that would be great. The more sets the better. LCCOA is looking for a small pool table to replace our regulation table. If anyone would like to donate a pool table, please contact Susan at 815288-9236. An issue of a Golden Echo couldn’t go by without sharing our thanks to Laura Mangrum for a very interesting presentation on SRES (how to keep seniors in their homes). If you missed it, we will be having another one in the

spring. LCCOA would like to thank Hvarre Real Estate for sponsoring our Santa’s Workshop; because of their support, our workshop was a great success. Another thank you goes out to Borg Warner for its generous annual support of LCCOA. Through their continued support, LCCOA is able to provide all of the well-needed services our seniors deserve. Thank you to all our supporters and sponsors; we are here because of you. Due to Sauk Valley News reducing the Golden Echo from 16 pages to 12, many of our wonderful pictures have been eliminated. We apologize to all of our generous donors, friends and clients. Happy Valentine’s Day! Enjoy the month and spread the love. Until next time LCCOA a place where you belong a place to call home. – Susan

us know which trip your looking forward to. We would love to hear from you. If you’re looking to explore further, Glenda has just the right trip for you! She’s headed to Barcelona, Spain in October. This journey will be a cruise that will make stops at four various ports in Spain and two stops at ports in Portugal. Doesn’t this sound fantastic? Hans Christian Andersen is quoted as saying, “to travel is to live.” I couldn’t agree more. Traveling is one of my absolute favorite things! There’s something about exploring the unknown with loved ones and the memories that you

create, that I just love. If you love to travel too, we hope to see you on one of our trips this year. If you plan to travel with us, be sure to get your membership! Your membership will help you save on the trips you take. A yearly membership for an individual is only $25 and for a couple it’s only $35. Not only will you save on your trips, but you’ll also help support the senior center as well! To my fellow travel seekers, Maybe the best moment of your life will be on your next big adventure – Siya Zarrabi Sincerely, Tori

LCCOA/WCSC

Specific Relocation of Information Office hours for LCCOA and WCSC Outreach Departments will now be located in the center Information boxes.Remember it is always best to call ahead and schedule an appointment no matter which center you wish to attend. WCSC will now share their monthly SHIP site information in the Weekly Activities section, as LCCOA does. Be sure to check this section when looking to see when the centers will visit the local sites within their county. Both centers only attend these sites upon appointments scheduled ahead of time. Information on upcoming Medicare Choice Classes at WCSC will be located in the Upcoming Special Events section located in the back of the Golden Echo. While the Medicare Q & A informational article (“Dear Marcy”) will no longer appear in the Golden Echo, any Medicare questions can still be answered by a Senior Health Insurance Program (SHIP) certified counselor from LCCOA

and WCSC, by phone or in person by appointment. WCSC offers a monthly Medicare Choices class (as mentioned above), and LCCOA offers Medicare presentations periodically throughout the year. The ITAC (amplified phone program) article will not run every month. For persons interested in this program, both LCCOA and WCSC are still available to schedule an appointment for free amplified phones or cell phone amplifier testing (CapTel or TTY too) at any time during the year. Both LCCOA and WCSC will continue to accept cell phones, iPads and iPods for recycling, however the reminder notice will appear in the Golden Echo only periodically throughout the year. Despite the changes, the bottom line is that LCCOA and WCSC want to offer you the best, most pertinent information. With information being shared throughout the pages, LCCOA and WCSC invite their readers to read all pages of the Golden Echo.As a reminder, both LCCOA and WCSC have Facebook pages and websites where up-to-date information is shared.

See below for center information.

v a e h I E v s e n r had! o i t a c It’s One of the Best Va Immediately following my discharge from CGH for a total hip replacement, I came to Regency Garden Unit for extended skilled care. A patient in my condition is nearly 100% dependent on others for assistance in all areas of life. When I handed over my care to your staff I did so with the belief that they would take care of me and that they cared about me as a person. The entire staff followed through in every way possible with respect to my beliefs, that they would take care of me and would do so in a manner that demonstrated they cared about me as a person. You have much to be grateful for in the staff you have. I extend my deepest gratitude to all staff at Regency Care for the part they had in my healing.

• February 2019

This month the Outreach Departments from LCCOA and WCSC want to share about the changes made within their articles.The amount of space allotted for the Outreach articles in the Golden Echo has decreased. It is for this purpose that the LCCOA and WCSC Outreach Departments have decided to share a column in the Outreach area of the Golden Echo. This change has given both LCCOA and WCSC all the more reason to work together each month and collaborate information, announcements, and other happenings that they wish to share with their readers. Both LCCOA and WCSC Outreach Departments are available to offer an array of services and resources to persons aged 60 and older, to those with disabilities, caregivers, and grandparents raising grandchildren. The centers have SHIP (Senior Health Insurance Program) and NIAAA (Northwestern Illinois Area Agency on Aging) trained caseworkers on staff, making it so that clients can stay educated and informed on programs that benefit them.
