  • October 5, 2017 (Sioux City) Connections Area Agency on Aging is implementing a frozen meal program to individuals 60 years of age and older. A frozen version of Meals on Wheels will be offered to home-bound clients. The program will be provided in rural areas where we are unable to reach the clients with a hot home-delivered meal. Meals are provided on a suggested contribution of $3.75 per meal.

    A grant from Missouri River Historical Development (MHRD) has provided partial funding. The grant enabled Connections Area Agency on Aging to purchase a temperature-controlled vehicle. This will allow us to safely deliver the frozen meals to clients’ homes in Woodbury, Cherokee, Ida, Monona, and Plymouth Counties.

    If you are 60 years of age or older and interested in receiving more information on these meals, please contact Connections AAA 1-800 432-9209

  • LE MARS — Keeping active and fit is important for people of all ages.

    A number of activities are offered at the Le Mars Senior Center to help individuals remain active.

    Most recently, a group of seniors completed a course, Tai Chi for Arthritis, offerered by the Connections Area Agency on Aging.

    Stan Wisnieski was the instructor for the eight week course. Sessions were held twice a week.

    “I have taught ‘A Matter of Balance’ here before. When I told them Tai Chi was coming, they wanted me to bring it here,” Wisnieski said.

    Persons with arthritis have mobility but limited mobility, he said.

    For this class, Wisnieski taught the Sung style developed by Dr. Paul Lam.
