Pokeno is a combination of poker and keno (or lotto) and is similar to the game Bingo in several aspects. We welcome new players. Join in the fun!
Pinochle is a trick-taking and melding game popular in the United States. The game is derived from a variation of Bezaique and was brought to America by German immigrants! We will be playing double deck and it is open to everyone.
We have new and exciting games, plus an extra money pot on certain games played. Please join us - it's lots of fun and be sure to bring your pennies!
If Nickel/Nickel is your game, join one of the games going on. There is always room for new players.
Shuffleboard is very popular with our members. Our two tables are ready and waiting for you.
Billiards is a fun classic among our members. We have four billiards tables, so there is always room for you to rack up and play.
Ping Pong is here! Thanks to a very generous donation Weston now has a beautiful new ping pong table! So grab a paddle and a friend to play!
Wii Bowling League
Our members love to Wii Bowl! In fact, we are part of a league called the “Wii Bowling Generation of Northern Delaware”. We along with 13 other senior centers and senior living facilities participate in this league that runs from September-May. At the end of our season we gather together and celebrate with a banquet and award ceremony. At the end of the 2018-2019 season we were proud to say one of our teams the “Alley Cats” came in first place.
The new season 2019-2020 has begun and we have 10 teams and 40 members competing this year. We are always looking for substitutes, so if you are interested see Dottie at the front desk and she will add you to our list.
If you like to do jigsaw puzzles, we have a great selection of puzzles from which to choose. There are always two or three puzzles in the process of being completed.
Come dance along to oldies music with our dance instructor, Joanne Brady! Dance, like any form of exercise, benefits seniors in many ways. Regular physical, mental, and social stimulation is the gold standard recommendation for reducing the risk of dementia. Because it involves all three, dancing can be seen as a “triple-threat” option for older adults who want to protect their brains.
Join us on Thursday mornings from 10:00 am to 11:00 am. Classes are $4.00 per person.
Be sure to check the schedule in the lobby as there are days Joanne will not be at the center.
Wow! What a great time we are having in dance class! Dance affects many areas of the body, including the brain. The combination of cognitive coordination with the muscles is like a complete workout inside out. Our dance instructor, Joanne Brady, is keeping us "stepping". You are guaranteed to get some great exercise while having lots of fun.
Join us on Wednesday mornings from 10:00 am to 11:00 am. Classes are $4.00 per person.
Watch out in the hallways! Our walkers" are off and walking! Countless studies have linked regular walking with heart-health benefits. Walking has been linked in men and women with lower risks of high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, heart disease, stroke, and cardiac arrest. Even small amounts of walking each week have been shown to reduce these risks around 15% to 20%.
We have some "walking logbooks" from the Division of Services for the Aging in partnership with the Delaware Senior Olympics where
you can chart the miles you walk.
In partnership with Fraim Center for Active Adults, Weston will be offering an aquatic exercise class.

During Open Enrollment Medicare, which runs from October 15 thru December 7 for a January 1, 2020 effective date, you can switch your Part D plan. It is important to review your plan because the drug formularies can change each year. If you would like help with choosing a plan, see Dottie for an appointment.
This program offers assistance to low income seniors with their prescription costs. If you are over the age of 65 and have an annual income of less than $23,340, you may qualify.
It is important for you to have an Advance Health Care Directive, more commonly referred to as a "living will". If you have never completed a "living will", see Dottie for a form. For those who already have a "living will", you may want to review it periodically to see that it still does what you want.
