Important message to all persons 60 and over:

We are all in this together! Feeling isolated? The Bucks County Area Agency on Aging is offering a telephone assurance service to any Bucks County senior (60+) who is feeling isolated and would welcome a chance to connect with one of our volunteers. Staying socially connected is essential to good health and has been especially challenging since the onset of social distancing practices. This program allows Bucks County residents to connect with someone new, get to know one another, and share their experience through the course of this pandemic. To join this program, call 267-880-5700 and ask to be registered for the telephone assurance program. It’s amazing the difference a little togetherness can make!

JOKE OF THE MONTH:

Exercising
A woman on the phone to her friend: “I feel like my body has gotten totally out of shape, so I got my doctor’s permission to join a fitness club and start exercising…. I decided to take an aerobics class for seniors. I bent, twisted, gyrated, jumped up and down, and perspired for an hour. But, by the time I got my leotards on, the class was over.
