News & Notes

Support groups can help caregivers manage stress and take time for self-care. We are looking to re-vamp our support groups for caregivers and want your help.  The survey only takes a couple of minutes. We are asking caregivers their opinion on support group times, days, how often and if there are any topics, they are looking to see us present on. Please consider taking our survey today.

Connections Area Agency on Aging is exploring the interest of people in the Lamoni community who are 60 years and older for noon meals Monday through Friday. The meals are offered at a suggested contribution rate of $5.25 per meal.  The hot meals will be delivered each day between the hours of 11 and 1 p.m. to the homes of those participating in the program.  Connections AAA is partnering with the Lamoni Ministerial Alliance to ascertain the level of interest in Lamoni. If you are interested, please contact Connections by calling 800.432.9209 Ext. 8702 and ask for Ronda Engles.

It’s that time of year again, Connections AAA 4th Annual Secret Santa for Seniors. We are excited to offer 2 great options this year to consider maximizing your giving:

1-Be a Secret Santa for a senior who may not receive a gift during the holiday season.  By providing a gift card of either $25.00 or $50.00 a local aging Iowan will be provided with some holiday cheer.   We are requesting gift cards be dropped off or mailed to one of our office locations by December 2, 2022.


2-Provide support to many older adults with a donation to Connections Area Agency on Aging.  Donations will go to meet increased service needs.  Your holiday gift will help us reduce or eliminate the wait for vital in-home services that are key to the independence of aging individuals in your community.
