Cooperstown couple wins recognition for care of senior citizens at center

Cooperstown couple wins recognition
for care of senior citizens at center

By KEVIN LIMITI • Special to www.AllOTSEGO.com

Carol Lachance and Mike Lachance were presented with an “Outstanding Seniors of the Community” recognition from the Office of the Aging in an award announced Monday, May 3.

“It is truly an honor and very much a surprise,” Carol said.

The Lachances run the Cooperstown Senior Community Center in the recreation center of St. Mary’s Roman Catholic Church at 31 Elm St. in Cooperstown. Mike said that he didn’t really expect the award, but he wants to use it to promote the senior center.

“Seniors want to feel that somebody cares about them,” Mike said. “It really revives them.”

COVID-19 has affected everybody, but no group has been as impacted like senior citizens. The pandemic has affected the senior population disproportionately compared to other age groups with 85% of deaths occurring to those 65 or older, according to 2020 statistics from the New York Department of Health.

The center has been taking steps to help seniors affected by the pandemic, including those dealing with increased social isolation.
