The Vintage Times, a popular televised half-hour segment on topics of interest for older adults has made a comeback on DGTV Channel 6! Watch for the current topics on these channels:

DGTV Channel 6 and AT & T U-verse Channel 99, Wednesdays at 6 pm and Thursdays at 9 am. It’s also on Comcast Public Access Channel 19, Thursdays at 6pm. 

A little background…the Vintage Times has a proud history. It is the longest running continuous DGTV program in the western suburbs. Airing once per month, for over 30 years, and featuring informational topics of interest for adults 55 years and older, this program has addressed senior housing needs, transportation, mental health, caregivers, care-giving and a multitude of other subjects.

The first return show is now airing, and covers the Senior Adult Day Center located at Gloria Dei Lutheran Church: 4501 Main Street Downers Grove. This adult “day care” program is a warm and welcoming place for adults needing supervision. They are provided with memory care activities, crafts, conversation and kindness by all staff and volunteers involved with the program. Executive Director, Susan Neustrom, is very proud of her program and hopes to get more seniors engaged in these activities through their families, before there is a crisis need.

Our next show will feature Senior Scams in a two-part presentation. Thomas Brady Dean/Director of the Homeland Security Training Institute at College of DuPage will be interviewed along with our own Robert Petranek, Senior Advisory Committee and Friends for Downers Grove Township Seniors Board member who has created his own Senior Scams presentation for local consumption. Our 2-part series will be taped in May to be shown in June and July. We hope to go back to a monthly format very soon!

To obtain a tape of the shows we produce, check with your local libraries, park districts or our Township office. Contact the senior services coordinator at the number or email listed below. Questions or suggestions are very welcome!
