Every week day you are welcome to come in and play games, put together puzzles, read books.  Our rule is if you are a member you can take a couple puzzles or books home and then just bring them back when you are done.  We believe in the honor system.  We play games like checkers, and Skipbo, and Dominos, and card games, etc.  plus we have several different monthly senior magazines that we subscribe to, and they  do need to stay here at the center but you are so welcome to use them while you are here.  We have two pool tables, a treadmill, a gazelle, a health rider, a shake machine, two stationary bikes, a computer with internet, three different newspapers, television, piano, organ, lots of visiting and socializing.  Come and join us.

Monthly Events:

First Monday:  Starting in November we will have toe nail trimming by Dr. Burnham.  He is a new local podiatrist in Payson.  It is important that you read this entirely before just showing up:  You will need to sign up ahead of time.  You will be given a small packet with a Hipaa form, a new patient form, and you will need to have a copy of your Insurance card on both sides.  The reason for this is Dr. Burnham is going to waive  your co pay and just charge your insurance, but he will have to call your insurance ahead of time to make sure your insurance will cover toe nail trimming.  If it does not he will tell you ahead of time so you do not get charged for something that you will have to pay for.  If there is any other foot care needed this will be set up between you and Dr. Burnham, not at the senior center.  He is offering this special to our senior center as a favor, at his expense, to the first twenty seniors that sign up.
