Senior Services Has Much To Offer
rom bluegrass to help with taxes, something for everyone

Lincoln Herald Staff

LINCOLNTON––Lincoln County Senior Services has something for everyone.

That’s the word this week from department spokeswoman Darlene Stroupe. March is a busy month at the Lincoln County Senior Center, and Stroupe told us all about it.

Every Tuesday, 10-11:30 a.m., the senior center holds its bluegrass jam. Local bluegrass musicians are invited to come in and jam or just listen to the music.

On the first Tuesday of every month, there’s a smart phone/tablet clinic, 1-3 p.m., for those wanting help with these handheld devices.

“If you have a smart phone or tablet you have questions about, bring it for a one-on-one question-and-answer session,” said Stroupe.

She added that the next such class is April 7.

Then there’s help with preparing your taxes, thanks to the American Association of Retired People (or AARP). Stroupe explained that the Lincoln County Senior Center is a tax aid site this year with the AARP Tax Aide Foundation to complete federal and state tax returns during tax season on Tuesdays and Thursdays. If you are interested in having your taxes prepared, call (704) 732-9053 before April 14 to make an appointment.

The Lincoln County Senior Center will also present a series of informative seminars. March 11 at 10 a.m., there will be a seminar on geriatric depression.

“Join us as we discuss depression and how it differs from normal sadness or grief,” said Stroupe. “We will also discuss risk factors specific to seniors, as well as guidelines for when to seek help from a professional, and tips for how to help improve your mood.”

“Medicare 101: the Basics,” a free seminar all about Medicare, will be held March 12, 10 a.m.-noon.

“This seminar is open to anyone new to Medicare or interested in learning more about Medicare,” said Stroupe. “The seminar will include a question-and-answer session.”

“The Confident Caregiver,” presented by the Alzheimer’s Disease Association, will be held March 17, 3-4 p.m.

In recognition of March as National Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month, the senior center will host staffers from the Lincoln County Health Department for a seminar on the subject, March 18, 10 a.m.-noon.

March 19 at 2 p.m., local financial expert Chris Rhyne will talk about the stock market and investing. 

Growing food with limited space
“Patio Farming Basics,” all about growing food in small spaces, will be presented March 20 at 3 p.m. The cost is $12. All attendees will leave with information, new insight, skills and a plant baby or seed packet. RSVP at (704) 732-9053.

And a workshop in self-managing chronic pain will be held Wednesdays, March 25-April 29, 2-4 p.m.

“This workshop will help you take control of your ongoing pain, rather than letting it control you!” said Stroupe. “This class will help you manage symptoms, fight fatigue, communicate with your doctors and more.”

The Lincoln County Senior Center is located at 612 Center Drive in Lincolnton. Call (704) 732-9053 for more information on these or other upcoming programs and events.
