AHM CHOREs Program 

AHM Youth and Family Services CHOREs program is back after being temporarily closed due to COVID-19.  For any senior already registered for the CHOREs Program can simply call the AHM office at 860-228-9488, leave a message and you will receive a return call.

The CHOREs Program is for seniors whose health and finances prevent them from completing yard work around their homes. There is no cost to seniors, but they must fill out an eligibility form to assure that grant guidelines that fund this program are followed.  CHOREs is generously supported by the North Central Area Agency on Aging, AHM Youth and Family Services and local and civic and faith community contributions, as well as donations made by seniors using the program.

During this time work is limited to only outdoor yard work projects and social distancing compliance will be strictly adhered too.  If you are interested in getting some help for your outdoor projects please call AHM at 860-228- 9488.

MINDFUL MEDITATION VIDEO #1 – I’ve done a mindful meditation class at the Senior Center for several years, but being closed due to the pandemic we haven’t been able to be together, so I am now going to be making these videos for you to enjoy. If you’ve never done it before, that’s ok, start today. Just get yourself in comfortable seated position, feet on the floor, hands in your lap and listen to the video. You can either watch the video, which is just a still shot of the trees in my backyard, or you can close your eyes and just listen. It’s just under 10 minutes. I hope you enjoy.
