Care Connection will close the Slater Senior Center at the end of the month. Click to hear KMZU’s Sarah Scott speak with Saline County County Services Director Kathy Tyre:
Care Connection for Aging Services made the decision because of the low numbers. Tyre said most services will still be available in the area.
“The only thing that they will be missing out on will be a meal available served in the dining room. Anyone that’s currently a regular patron of the center will be eligible for home-delivered meals because, obviously, there’s no center available in their location. Otherwise, everything should be about the same,” said Tyre.
The Center currently only serves between four and ten people on a regular basis. The final day will by June 30th.
They still hope to receive donations from the community, as the home-delivery meals cost money. Anyone with questions can contact the center at (660) 886-9888.
