AKWESASNE — The staff at the Saint Regis Mohawk Tribe’s Office for the Aging are excited to announce that the Senior Center (Tsi Tetewatatkens) will be resuming congregate meals and activities beginning on Monday, August 9, 2021. To welcome our senior guests back there will be a special menu and the return of Monday Bingo!

As we continue to care about your health, as well as for everyone who visits the Senior Center to feel comfortable, we ask anyone planning to visit the facility to please adhere to the following safety guidelines:

  • We ask that any individual who is not feeling well to please stay home and visit the Senior Center another day.
  • Please stay home if you have any of the following: Fever, shortness of breath, chills, cough, muscle aches, runny nose, sore throat, tiredness, or headache. While preventing COVID is a priority right now, we also need to prevent the spread of other contagious conditions, such as influenza, which can have negative impacts on the health and wellbeing of our elders.
  • All unvaccinated individuals are asked to wear a mask while in the Senior Center. All fully vaccinated individuals do not need to wear a mask while in the facility. If wearing a mask makes the individual feel more comfortable while in the center, they are welcome to do so.
  • Individuals who would like to attend the Noon (12:00 p.m.) meal must call by 9:30 a.m. and place a reservation. There is a limit of 50 meals per day. At this time, no walk-ins will be accepted.
  • We will continue to offer Grab-and-Go meals as an alternative to the congregate meal for those who are hesitant to return to a group setting. Individuals must call before 9:30 a.m. to reserve their Grab-and-Go meal. There is a limit of 20 meals per day. Meals will be available for pickup at the front door from 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. This is half an hour earlier than our usual pickup.
  • We will use drop boxes for contribution collection. Envelopes will be provided for elders receiving services at home. Contributions can be dropped off or mailed to the Senior Center. There will also be a drop box available for congregate meal contributions. Contributions are voluntary and an elder cannot be denied a meal or service for an inability or preference not to contribute.
  • Pre-registration is required for all activity classes and trips. Please check the newsletter and the Senior Center Facebook page for upcoming events, trips, and classes.
