Monday Excursions DMCC has added a new program to our monthly schedule of activities. One Monday every month our “Sprinter” bus takes Del Mar Seniors to some of the beautiful locations in San Diego. Upcoming excursions include a guided tour of the Stuart Collection, and a walking tour of Queen Califia’s Magical Circle in Kit Carson Park. This is a great opportunity for socializing with local peers, as well as getting out into the fresh air. The trips last about three hours, and usually end with a no host lunch, time to socialize and catch up. If you are interested in learning more about this activity, and to find out each month when and where the bus will go, please contact the DMCC office at 858-792-7565 to be added to our mailing list.
NEST…… (Neighborhood Emergency Support Team)
As extremes in weather patterns continue to occur in our region, now is the time to evaluate just how your individual household is prepared should a disaster occur. If you think you, or someone you know, might need help during a disaster or evacuation, our Neighborhood Emergency Support Team (NEST) program is here to assist. The aim of NEST is to help during a disaster if our first-responders are unable to respond. The program matches each participant with two of their neighbors who will help them take simple steps to plan ahead for disasters, help the participants made decisions should a disaster occur, call their emergency contacts, and help them with their pre-arranged evacuation plan if needed. For more information please contact DMCC at 858-792-7565.
Foxy Flyer is ready to serve…
DMCC’s handicapped accessible van is available to all Del Mar residents in wheelchairs who could benefit from transportation assistance. It augments two other services in the DMCC transportation program—the weekly “Sprinter” bus service which takes seniors on grocery and other group trips, and the “volunteer driver” service in which a volunteer drives a senior to medical, dental or physical therapy appointments. Arrangements for any of the three services can be made by calling the DMCC office at 858 -792-7565.
