Just prior to COVID-19 turning the world upside down, the Council on Aging at the Kane Center and the Banner Lake Community Center began strategizing a partnership that would bring senior programming directly to the Hobe Sound community. The Council on Aging has been operating one of its senior dining centers at the Banner Lake Club for several years, but the opening of the beautiful new Community Center presented a fresh opportunity to enrich the lives of seniors.

Family Caregiver Workshop goes virtual to support caregivers when they need it most

The Council on Aging of Martin County at the Kane Center had to postpone its 6th annual Family Caregiver Workshop originally slated for April 3, 2020. After months of careful planning, the Workshop is back in a new virtual format that will air live from the Kane Center on Friday, September 11 at 1:30 p.m.

“Caring for a loved one with a memory disorder is never easy, much less during a global pandemic,” said Donna True, LCSW, Program Development and Outreach Coordinator for the Council on Aging at the Kane Center. “Now more than ever it is important for us to be able to offer advice and ideas that caregivers can easily translate into their everyday lives.”

The virtual workshop will feature the real-world tips and tricks caregivers have come to expect from the Kane Center’s annual event in a condensed, ninety-minute version that family caregivers can enjoy safely from their own homes.

Council on Aging at the Kane Center Announces Phased Re-Opening Plans for Programs Suspended Due to COVID-19

Throughout the COVID-19 crisis, the Council on Aging of Martin County at the Kane Center has continued to serve the community’s vulnerable seniors through home-delivered meals, primary medical care, free shopping assistance, telephone reassurance and counseling, in-home care, and much more. As Gov. Ron DeSantis rolls out his Safe, Smart, Step-by-Step Plan to reopen Florida, the Council has heeded the recommendation to encourage seniors to remain safer at home. Beginning Friday, June 5, Florida moved into Phase 2 of the plan, which lifts some of the recommended restrictions on socialization for seniors.
