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

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.”
