The Kane Center is able
On this past Friday, Sept. 9, the Kane Center in Stuart was busy. Very busy. But then, it’s always a beehive of activities, all centered on two things — seniors of all stripes, including veterans, and the whole community at large.
The programs and services are various and numerous.
“Basically, our senior activities include fitness activities, clubs — like bridge and quilting clubs,” explained Chelsey Matheson, director of marketing. Other clubs include chess, knitting, poker, mah-jongg, painting, photography — the list is long.
Fitness activities include line-dancing, Zumba, ballroom-dancing and chair yoga.
“Our (other) services include the Kane Medical Group, Meals on Wheels and Kane Cuisine, which is a paid version (of Meals on Wheels) for people who are perhaps temporarily confined to their house after a hospital stay,” said Matheson.
The Kane Medical Group is a whole component in itself. In addition with partnership with the Alzheimer’s Association, there are partnerships with hospice — help with wills and overall case management — and a partnership with Martin Health, helping patients who are constantly readmitted, with case management to help keep them at home.
