Just a friendly reminder that Medicare open enrollment is almost here. October 15th-December 7th is the time for Medicare beneficiaries to review their drugs plans, and make sure that they have the right plan for them. If you or someone you know is in need of assistance reviewing their Medicare options, they can call us at 800-432-9209 for more information.
Also happening in October is the Siouxland Big Give. Connections AAA is taking part in the 2021 Siouxland Big Give a 24-hour day of giving where Siouxland community members are encouraged to donate to their favorite local charities. You don’t have to be from the Sioux City area to take part, and the proceeds from the events helps us to support Older Iowans and their family caregivers throughout our 20 county service area.
Due to the support and generosity of supporters and volunteers like you we were able to continue excellent supports and services to Older Iowans across Siouxland. In fiscal year 2021 we provided the following services to our Siouxland elders and their caregivers:
122 Siouxland Seniors with 7,651 rides
838 homebound Siouxland Seniors with 73,145 meals
1088 Siouxland Seniors and their caregivers received 1745 sessions of information and assistance
1,734 Siouxland Seniors we provided with 96,566 units of service from information and assistance to home delivered meals options counseling and case management.
We are truly thankful for the generosity of our supporters and communities we serve. We are still in need of additional assistance, to assure that we can continue offering expanded services to Older Iowans throughout Siouxland and our entire service area. Your generous donation of any amount helps your family members, friends and neighbors remain in their homes and age on their own terms.
We invite you to show your support of Connections Area Agency on Aging by donating now through Tuesday October 5th at https://connectionsaaa.tiny.us/SLBG
Take Care and Be Well,
