The Stamford Adult Center and Club invites over 60 seniors and their caregivers to join them in the Over-60 Club on October 6 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. for information and resources on financial relief for seniors during this time of great inflation.
With inflation recently soaring to its highest level in 40 years, these two nonprofits are partnering to bring in agencies from across the state to provide information on programs for seniors that can help drive up costs. Participants include Southwestern CT Agency on Aging, Silver Source, Charter Oak Senior Housing, City of Stamford Social Services, Food Bank of Lower Fairfield County, and many more.
“These are tough times for seniors,” says Christina Crane, executive director of the Stamford Senior Center. “Connecticut’s overall inflation rate has risen 7.9% in the past year alone, and that makes day-to-day expenses and planning for the future difficult, especially when living on a fixed income.”
A senior inflation assistance exhibition will be held at the Oversteen Club, located at St John’s Episcopal Church, 628 Main Street, 2nd floor in Stamford CT. Parking can be found at Faith Tabernacle Church on Grove Street and Canterbury Green Garage on Suburban Avenue.
“This exhibition will introduce seniors to programs that may be able to help them cope with rising costs, and guide them through every step of the process to get that help quickly,” says Betty McCusker, Director of The Over 60 Club.
