How to support seniors during the holiday season

Looking for ways to support seniors during the holiday season? In this KOB 4 interview, DSA Director Anna Sanchez talks about writing letters and using the A Senior I Know essay contest to stay connected this year.

Note: DSA Centers remain closed to the public. Any footage that shows the inside of our Centers was taken pre-COVID.

With senior centers closed since March, it's been a hard year.

This Thanksgiving, we are especially thankful for the DSA team members who have shown up day after day to make sure that seniors in Albuquerque have hot meals, rides, care coordination, working heaters, firewood, volunteer opportunities, care packages, COVID-safe learning and fitness opportunities and so much more. And for the DSA team members who support outside of school youth programming so parents who are essential workers have a safe, engaging place to send their kids. To all approximately 230 of our dedicated, passionate, caring staff—we think you rock! #OneAlbuquerque

Maybe you could have some information about the COVID vaccine since this is what most seniors are concerned about now. I don't see a word about it. I spent hours yesterday trying, unsuccessfully, to find out where I could get a shot besides the DOH website.
Hi Senior Affairs. Please post some prominent info about where people can donate to needy seniors so we can easily help and share
Picked up my free puzzle today!! Thank you Western Sky Community Care! It’s great quality and was fun to do. I started a Puzzle Club at the beginning of this craziness, 20+ members! This is puzzle #136! Added a few hearts to break up the white ❤️❤️ Thank you for giving to the community! ❤️🧩🧩
This is Shirley, a regular at Bear Canyon Senior Center, and these are the angels that have the heart for our elders. Thank you Albuquerque for doing a drive through meet and greet for your most loyal customers, being shuttered since COVID started has been a loss the coffee and treats really made Shirleys day , she can’t stop talking about it ... she misses you so .. much love
Stories of America’s DEPRESSION BABIES are rarely told – but, finally, some of their stories HAVE been written, by Albuquerque author Lloyda Albach in her current book, "Bedtime Stories for a Lady of a Certain Age." -- It is available most places that books are sold, including at Barnes & Noble and Page 1 bookstores, and is just $12.95 on Amazon at: https://www.amazon.com/Bedtime-Stories-Lady-Certain- Age/dp/1641388110/ref=sr_1_1?crid=1H848V2CW34GR&keywords=bedtime+stories+for+a+lady+of+a+certain+age&qid=1561242122&s=books&sprefix=bedtime+stories+for+a+la%2Cstripbooks%2C172&sr=1-1 -- Her book is bringing smiles to older folks – both ladies and men. She says, for example: “When I write about slipping south, it’s not about crossing the Mason-Dixon Line, it’s about my skin slipping south in a surprising number of areas!” 😊 -- The book has been published (in LARGE print) by Page Publishing in New York and makes a great gift for an older friend! -- Are depression babies our “lost” American generation? They’re not the “Greatest Generation,” born before 1928 – but they are truly named our “Silent Generation,” born to Depression parents (1929-1939).
