The Gibson Center
Proudly Serving Senior Citizens
The Gibson Center for Senior Services is a non-profit corporation providing services to senior citizens of Northern Carroll County since 1979. Our goal is to enable seniors to remain in their homes, while maintaining a high level of independence and quality of life through the offering of an evolving array of programs and services. Our programs are designed to serve the needs of these active and passive senior residents through nutrition programs (home delivery, congregate meals and nutrition education), transportation programs for the elderly and disabled to help meet their daily living needs, social and educational programs to enable them to stay actively involved in their communities with purpose and dignity, and referral and networking programs with related community service agencies.
Greetings from The Director
I just walked through the Dining Room, Activity Room and Kitchen for the first time in weeks and it felt like homecoming. As eager as I was to have the roof insulation project happen and as well as it went due to the planning by Ken and the nutrition/kitchen staff, I am nonetheless so happy it’s done and we are reopened. It has felt lonely and empty without all of you being here with us inside for meals, exercise, learning, and laughing. That rainbow says what it means for us to have you here
I am very pleased to have Dr. Charlie Felton joining us for one-to-one, free consultations to help decode healthcare information. As an extension of the Health Literacy and Telehealth program this winter, he will now be meeting with people having trouble navigating websites, recommendations, claims and research. Additionally we will be having well known specialist, Joan Lanoie, available to help on Tuesday mornings, 9AM-12:00PM on June 14th and 21st, with completing advanced directives for end-of-life planning. They join Ele Border who does New to Medicare education. Call for an appointment.
Our Stay Safe, Warm and Dry home repair program, only 5 months old, has taken 35 calls and Adam has completed 9 significant projects. The Friendly Visitor Program is underway with training and visits.
My goal is to provide our community with the services we need and reach people where they are. If you have ideas or ways you would like to offer services or volunteer, please contact me at [email protected].
