To borrow medical equipment – call the Sachse Seniors Center

As most of you know my husband Roy is a patient at Founders Plaza in Wylie.

Roy and I have been married for 59 fabulous years. On our anniversary we talked on the phone most of the day and reminisced. I was taken to dinner that evening by three of my senior friends. A very nice gesture, I thought, but when dinner was over we drove to Founders Plaza and that was not my idea at the time. When we arrived there were about 25-30 well-wishers along with my husband waiting for me to arrive. It was quite a celebration with cards, cake and flowers. Thank you to all that made this a special day for both of us.

If there is anyone out there that is sight impaired and could use a reader, complete with rolling table stand, I have one that is just begging for a new home.

Another service we offer to the community is the use of walkers, canes, crutches, wheel chairs and bath benches. These are all available to use and return. If you have a weekend guest that could use these services you are welcome to borrow these items. Perhaps you are just coming home from the hospital and could use a walker for a few weeks, you are welcome to borrow one of ours.

The center operated very well this past week. Meals, activities and events went unscathed. Oxford Glen provided lunch on Monday of ham, beans with cornbread, one of our favorites, especially for game day.

Tuesday the bridge students practiced, the balance class was in action, and the line dancers were tripping to the music. Steve Cox shared lunch with us a memory of his wife, Carolyn. Carolyn was a bridge student and a game player and loved coming to the center daily. She is certainly missed.

Wednesday we had games and socializing before pizza was delivered by 1st Choice In-Home Care. A real delight. Many thanks.

Thursday was our party day with bingo in the morning, sponsored by Senior Care – Beltline and lunch sponsored by Clark Financial Group. Our birthday parties are always a big celebration. Every year is a blessing and worth celebrating.

Friday we played games, relaxed and went to Walmart for our monthly shopping spree. In the evening we enjoyed the monthly Fun Night with games and finger foods. We play so many different games on this evening and learn new games all the time.

We had a fun game day when Barnes and Nobel spoke to us about E-readers.

Tuesday we will practice bridge, the balance class will be in full swing, the Metal Detector Group will try to go out and the line dancers will have the music playing. Garland Nursing and Rehab will sponsor lunch and the computer class will meet in the afternoon.

Wednesday is our big day of the month when we have our potluck. Linda Freeland will be here with her 50’s show to entertain you. She is a great entertainer and we look forward to seeing her again. The last time she was here she was ‘Patsy Cline’.

Thursday we will start off with games and then the Nestegg Wealth Advisors will arrive and we will be challenged to play ‘Remember When.’ This is a really great exercise for the mind. You are in a group of 5-6 people and you answer the questions as a team.

Friday the book club will meet in the morning and we will play games during the day. Fun Night will be that evening with games and finger foods.

Father’s Day Weekend is soon, so enjoy your family, be kind to all the ‘daddies’ out there and do fun activities.

Remember to live your life and forget your age. Until our next visit I will keep the door open.
