ANNOUNCEMENTS!!

Mayor Annette M. Blackwell

Welcomes you to the

City of Maple Heights website

NEORSD Information

Message from Mayor Blackwell:

 

Spring is later this month, always a nice time of year. Schoolchildren even have a Spring Break and families often vacation this time of year traveling to warmer places; it is a good time to break from the long and dark days of winter.

 

I recently visited Jennings Center for Older Adults in Garfield Heights. I was impressed with this beautiful, bright, and spiritual senior community and all that they offer.

 

I have been reaching out since I took office to developers of senior living communities because I realize how many of you still believe in the City of Maple Heights and want to remain here. However, I also know that these communities offer a preferred life for seniors, which provide a quality of life that makes them feel safer, assist with meal preparation, help with loneliness and take away the responsibilities of home and yard maintenance.

The City of Maple Heights is fortunate to have a Senior Center that offers a full service of senior services that include transportation and a variety of social, educational, and recreational programs. But, in an effort to meet the wide-ranging needs of older adults in the Maple Heights area this type of senior living is also needed. While, I recognize that senior communities are not for everyone, I do want to be the kind of Mayor that is forward think-ing and is consistently thinking of your population and its needs.

Lastly, we do have an excellent working relationship with the Jennings Center for Older Adults and their living communities are open to all residents, not just Garfield Heights. Please speak to someone in the Senior Center if this becomes a living option for you.
