City Offers Low-Cost, Free Senior Resources

Although the Senior Lifestyles pages in the Oct. 21 edition of the Leader were informative, most of the articles and advertisements referenced expensive places or services not in Burbank.

In contrast, the city of Burbank has many senior activities and services that are either low-cost or free.

For example, midday meals are available Tuesdays and Thursdays at three city sites. There is also a Home Delivered Meal program.

Other services and activities at the Don Tuttle Senior Center and the Joslyn Adult Center include:

• Movement activities

• Hearing screenings(free)

• Free Medicare assistance — Part D, Medigap, long-term care insurance, etc.

• Games and crafts

• Notary services ($5 with a Burbank senior activity card)

• Assistance with legal issues through Bet Tzedek

• Classes and discussion groups

• Burbank bus transportation within the city, with reservations

• Grab bar installation

Details can be found on-line at: burbankca.gov/web/parks-recreation/adults-55.
