Buncombe County 2013 - 2017 Aging Plan - Final Report



“My mother is 84 years old, and a regular participant at a senior dining site.  She enjoys sharing a meal with friends, discussing the day’s news, learning new information and doing exercises to keep fit.  Recently she had a serious episode with her heart and was hospitalized for two weeks.  Her biggest fear during that time was not being able to return to the site and spend time with her group.  I am sure her recovery at age 84 was greatly aided by this strong desire to get back to the program.  She missed the daily contact with friends, the exercise and special programs they offer.  She could not wait to get back, and so she did.  Without the Senior Dining program and her motivation to return to it, I truly believe her recovery may not have had such a happy outcome.  Thank you for being there for her.”
