A DeWitt County non-profit aimed at serving seniors is planning for a busy April, including the return of weekly support groups and services many local seniors rely on.


As discussion circulates regarding proof of vaccination for admission to events or to be a part of certain aspects of society, Executive Director of the DeWitt County Friendship Center Paula Jiles is letting local seniors make their own choices when attending their trips or coming into the center.



Jiles is excited because April marks the return of all its support groups at the Friendship Center. She notes these have waited on for a long time for seniors, including their monthly hearing aid checks, which she points out many seniors have let their hearing aids go unchecked for the last year. 



Community Care Systems Advocate Diane Cusey is also seeing seniors again for both walk-in and by appointment. She indicates they are asking for seniors to wear masks for their visits but is glad to starting seeing her seniors again.
