Readers' Voice

   Greetings from the Campus for Creative Aging
and Region IV Area Agency on Aging!
   As the final days of 2019 have passed, we wanted to take a few moments to thank you for your support this year. Whether it was serving as a volunteer, taking advantage of our Information and Assistance telephone line, receiving counseling on Medicare and Medicaid, singing with the Sounds Good Choir, or making a financial contribution, your participation was immensely important to us.
   Your 2019 contributions have supported:
   • 1,478 vulnerable seniors and persons with disabilities so that they could live with dignity at home;
   • The Campus for Creative Aging, where 14 classes were offered and 363 people learned something new;
   • 90,828 hours with area students served by Foster Grandparents;
   • 3,091 area seniors who received counseling to save $5,715,520 in Medicare and Medicaid costs; and
   • Answering 14,194 telephone requests for information, advice, and assistance.
   As you can see, it was a great year here at Area Agency on Aging! We couldn’t accomplish this much without your generous support. Thank you again, and we look forward to your continued support in 2020!
