ELKHART — The Council on Aging of Elkhart County is extending its hours for its Life Enrichment Program for seniors at the Tolson Center in Elkhart.
New hours include 9 to 11 a.m. Mondays for senior health and wellness activities including exercising, art and music and education. The Tolson Center is also open to seniors 55 and older from 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on Thursdays.
The Life Enrichment Program serves more than 200 seniors each week by helping older adults maintain healthy and happy lifestyles, according to the Council on Aging. Monthly speakers visit the program sites to talk about financial planning, insurance choices, health living and retirement issues. A free lunch is served at 11:30 a.m. at each site.
The Council on Aging has four sites for its Life Enrichment Program, including the Tolson Center. The other sites include The Cabin at 107 N. Walnut St. in Wakarusa, First Presbyterian Church at 200 E. Beardsley Ave. in Elkhart and First United Methodist Church's Life Center campus at 1212 W. Plymouth Ave. in Goshen. Transportation can be requested for most of the program's site by calling 295-1820.
The Council on Aging's Life Enrichment Program is funded by a United Way of Elkhart County grant and township trustee support as well as other grants and donations. Support for the Tolson Center is provided partly by the city of Elkhart.
