Alzheimer's the subject of next 'Dine with a Doc'
LAWRENCEVILLE - Jennifer Green, Alzheimer's Association Manager of Education and Community Volunteers for the Quincy office, will be the primary speaker when the Lawrence County Senior Citizens hosts its next Dine with a Doc on March 6.

The free program welcomes the local senior public to hear an educational topic while enjoying a complimentary lunch once each month.

This program is a community effort of a doctor, a lunch sponsor, the senior citizens, local churches and area businesses coming together for the good of all to serve the senior citizens.

Each visitor has donated this time in effort to listen, hear and answer medical questions while sharing a meal. Various community businesses also participate by donating door prizes or providing a complimentary lunch.

The program was designed to allow the seniors to get out of their homes, fellowship with their peers, extend their available financial resources, promote enhanced living and educate them from a preventative standpoint with the goal of improving their quality of life and providing them with the resources and information to make an informed choice.

A question/answer period will follow the discussion on the 10 Warning Signs of Alzheimer's.

This month's complimentary lunch is being provided by the United Methodist Village.

There will be an opening prayer and veterans in attendance will be recognized for their service and dedication. Various health care providers will be present to share information about their services and provide door prizes for participants to win.

The Lawrence County Senior Citizens Center is the resource center for seniors and disabled persons and families through a number of services. Specifically, home delivered meals, in-center meals, health screening, nutrition education, income tax preparation, assistance with Medicare filing and transportation for those in need is offered.

Reservations for Dine with a Doc are suggested. They may be made by contacting the senior center at 943-2177.

Lawrence County Memorial Hospital is a 2020 Key Supporter of Senior Education Ministries and the Dine with a Doc program. The center is open to suggestions regarding physicians and others for the monthly program. Suggestions should be made by contacting Lori Aplin at 1-877-223-6109.
