Sean Andersen from Greater Lakes Caring shared information about the services they offer to treat someone in their home so they can maintain independence. Private duty non-skilled care includes extra help around the house and medication reminders. Skilled care, funded by Medicare, is also available, as is hospice care.

Greater Lakes Caring also provides services such as physical, occupational, speech, music and massage therapy. An on-site social worker will help families find resources such as Meals on Wheels. They have nurses available all of the time for fast response. Their pledge is to do whatever possible to provide services that allow clients to stay in their homes.

Carolyn read the treasurer's report. The club’s funds are low, which causes a $7 fee from PNC. Dues for 2018 can be paid now.

All seniors in the Pierceton area are invited to club meetings. Peggy Owens will be the entertainment Dec. 18. The evening will begin at 6 p.m. with a carry-in dinner. There also will be Christmas songs.
