A Message from our CEO, Joe Tomsick

The Lake County Council on Aging plays an important role in the community and cares deeply for the critical population we serve, so closely identified with concerns of the coronavirus.  We continue working diligently to deliver on our mission to help support Lake County and its older residents. We have taken a comprehensive look at everything we do, and have announced several temporary changes to our operations due to the COVID-19 outbreak, including implementing a “no-contact” delivery method for our popular Meals on Wheels program and grab-and-go meals for existing congregate Lunch Place clients. 

Although the agency’s main office on East Avenue in Mentor is closed to the public, staff will continue to provide information, referral and support services for seniors, caregivers and family members by phone only, for the foreseeable future.  Currently hours remain Monday through Friday, 8:30am – 4:30pm, with phones being answered from 10:30am - 3:00pm.

How to sew your own FACE MASK  with Fabric Ties:

The CDC recommends you cover your mouth to protect yourself and others from the coronavirus. Here’s a YouTube link to a simple pattern and instructions on how to  make a cloth face mask.  It is important to note that covering your face with a piece of cloth won’t protect you.  But, it could help you from spreading the virus if you’re like some people who lack symptoms and don’t know they have it. 

Follow along with Jenny as she creates a quick and easy adjustable face mask using the fabric you have right at home:
