ZOOM Lodge Social Chats

If you are interested in visiting virtually with us, we are hosting Lodge Social Chats on ZOOM! We share! We play games! And most importantly we laugh!


ZOOM will be needed as a smart phone app, on your computer, or there is a phone-in (no video) option. Please email me (Joan) jseedorf@chaskamn.com or call me 952.227.7760 and I will get you added to our Lodge Social Chats list. Or if you have more questions about ZOOM and how it works please call. We get together regularly, typically every other week.


Next scheduled Lodge Social Chat is Wednesday, January 13 at 2:00 PM.

Metropolitan Area Agency on Aging - Health Insurance Counseling

To enable people to get the help they need, Metropolitan Area Agency on Aging now offers Health Insurance Counseling Phone Appointments, where a person can book an appointment with a Counselor and receive the Medicare counseling the same as they would receive from during an in-person appointment. Visit www.metroaging.org/HIC to book an appointment or to contact someone with any questions you might have.

Because The Lodge is unable to host in person appointments at this time, this could be a great resource for you! If I can assist you in this process please don't hesitate to contact Joan at 952.227.7760.
