Eldercare wants nominations for Senior for a Day

Staff reports

The Carson Valley Eldercare Coalition, a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting creative and innovative services to the seniors of Douglas County, announces its third annual Senior for a Day program.

Children, relatives and friends of seniors over the age of 65 may submit the name, address, phone number and whether the person is male or female to Carson Valley Eldercare Coalition, P.O. Box 667, Minden 89423.

A random drawing will be held on Dec. 1, from which two males and two females will become the Seniors for a Day. They will be treated to lunch and each will receive a gift basket full of goodies. All letters submitting names for this special event must be received no later than Nov. 26.

Those selected will be contacted in early December, with the lunch being held on Dec. 16 at Sharkey’s Nugget. For further information, contact Elaine Agnason, 782-7282.

Over the past few years, the Eldercare Coalition has been responsible for the printing and distribution of 5,000 Senior Services Directories, sending birthday and Christmas cards to all Meals on Wheels recipients, arranging yard cleanups in both spring and fall, donating Insure dietary supplements for the homebound, putting together “goodie” bags at Christmas for all Meals on Wheels recipients, as well as supporting other programs dedicated to the elderly in the Carson Valley, Agnason said.

All services are provided to seniors free of charge.
