Director's Message

 We live in an era where feeling and looking younger is pushed upon us – so much that there is a prejudice regarding getting older. 

Getting older is sometimes degraded and attitudes toward our older generations have brought upon neglect, resentment and even hate in the U.S. However, we are in a world where people are living longer, we have three generations of seniors, and within 10 years, seniors will outnumber children. By 2050, projections put 10 percent of the U.S. population at 90 years of age. The issue of today’s perceptions on aging is confusing because isn’t the goal to live a long and fruitful life?

There was a moment in U.S. history, first promoted in 1959, where there was focus on the Golden Years, a period between retirement and living to 80 that was deemed to be a special time of life. This notation has diminished as seniors are living longer. We now have the Silent Generation, baby boomers and Generation X all within the senior population. Interestingly, even the first millennials will be eligible to become members of the Blaine Senior Center within seven years (50-plus).

If anyone reaches out to get your Medicare Number or personal information in exchange for something, you can bet it's a scam. Stop scams before they happen. Visit Medicare.gov/fraud for tips on preventing Medicare scams and fraud. If you suspect fraud, call 1-800-MEDICARE to report it.
