CA Department of Rehabilitation

The California Department of Rehabilitation (DOR) works in partnership with consumers to provide services and advocacy with the goal of providing employment, independent living, and equality for individuals with disabilities.

DOR administers one of the largest vocational rehabilitation and independent living programs in the country. Vocational rehabilitation services are designed to help job seekers with disabilities obtain competitive employment in integrated work settings. Independent living services may include peer support, skill development, systems advocacy, referrals, assistive technology services, transition services, housing assistance, and personal assistance services.

The programs they provide are too numerous to list here.  I suggest you visit their web site at https://www.dor.ca.gov/

Online Shopping Update

After a couple of years of online shopping I became complacent.  A certain online store almost always had the best price, so if I was strapped for time and the purchase was small, I only checked this one site.  However, in checking large purchases, I began to notice that this online store didn’t always have the best prices.  In some cases, brick and mortar stores were cheaper.  And some prices (especially for food) were double.  I don’t know why this store is deteriorating, but my recommendation is to always get three price quotes.   They are so easy to get over the internet.

Newsletter – May 2019

Having problems finding  the newsletter online?  Well it’s on the City of Walnut Creek’s web page for 50+.  As this is an extremely large file, I don’t see any reason to duplicate it. There is a link for the city’s “Adults 50+” site on the right side of every web page.  It’s under the Section “Seniors“.  Look for the link titled “Walnut Creek Seniors City Site“.   When you go to this page, just click on the link for the month you want under “Check Out Our Newsletters“.

To make it even easier, here is the link for the May 2019 Newsletter.  The city will take this newsletter down in about two months, so if you want a permanent copy, download and save it.
