WESTFIELD - The Westfield Senior Day Program is trying to fight the winter blahs by being creative.
Therefore, on Friday, Jan. 18, participants made necklaces out of hardware store washers, decorated them with finger nail polish and hung on ribbon with a bead. The necklaces do not smell as good as the corsages donated for the Christmas program by the Four Seasons Flower shop, but they are still pretty.
Chautauqua Adult Day Care Centers, Inc., a nonprofit United Way agency, offers senior day programs for adults 60 years of age and older who live in the community. The agency has four sites serving all of Chautauqua County.
Participants in the Westfield Senior Day Program fought the winter blahs by making necklaces recently. Pictured in the back row from left to right are: Mona Baldwin; Bob Paddock; Emma Lapcevic; Quentin McCray; Eleanor Wise; Heidi Kelsey; and Mary Cogliano. In the front row from left to right are: Fran Lloyd; and Herb Marker.
The programs provide socialization and offer opportunities for older adults to participate in during the day. The sites provide breakfast, snack and a noon-time meal for participants. There is also a community recreation program helping people participate in outings in the community, and the sites offer pet therapy, ceramics, music programs and arts and crafts on an ongoing basis.
Funding is available. For more information, visit seniordayprograms.com or call 326-6842 in Westfield or 366-8786 in Dunkirk.
