Senior Center considering new programs


Archuleta Seniors, Inc. is planning funding requests for new programs to offer seniors starting in July.

The first program would be A Matter of Balance classes. These classes help address the issue of falling and fear of falling as we get older. Through education, discussion and exercises, participants learn how to prevent falls and become more active.

The second program being considered is the Chore Program. This program offers in-home chores, such as cleaning appliances, rugs, windows, turning mattresses, snow removal, tree trimming, etc. Home Modification Chore Services includes repairs, adaptations such as wheel chair ramps, installing grab bars in bathrooms, etc.
