406 Rigsbee Ave, 2nd floor, 919-688-4772, seniorpharmassist.org:
Senior PharmAssist helps Durham County residents age 60 and up manage and get access to the medications they need. They’re able to find resources that make medicines available at low cost, and they help teach how to use medications safely and effectively. A staff pharmacist can take a good look at all of the medications being taken by a resident and can recommend which ones are inadvertently working against each other. (This sometimes happens when someone has multiple doctors who aren’t aware of what the others are prescribing.) Call to set an appointment.

Seniors who ordinarily go to WD Hill and Lyon Park for lunch are invited to call and get on the Meal List. Once you’re on the list, you’ll be able to pick up five frozen meals for the week on Mondays at noon. Curbside service is available; just drive up.
The Senior Solidarity Project—Supply Dropoff will be held at the Durham Center for Senior Life (406 Rigsbee Ave) on Saturday, June 6, 10am–2pm. If you have any supplies to share, the DCSL would greatly appreciate it if you could donate them. Volunteers will be on hand to accept toilet paper, paper towels, disinfecting wipes, hand/body soap, shampoo, hair conditioner, toothpaste, face masks, and anything else you think our elderly neighbors could use. These volunteers will be happy to retrieve the supplies for your vehicle’s back seat or trunk, and they will be distributed to residents of DHA senior housing. Click here for more info.
