August 28, 2021: An Essential Tool to Help Floridians Stay Safe on the Road
Florida's Guide to Safe Mobility for Life is a free handbook designed to help Florida’s road users achieve mobility independence, learn how to enhance safe driving skills and, if necessary, build a transportation plan that explores life beyond the driver’s seat.
The Guide includes worksheets and state and local resources that help build a transportation plan that works for you. It lists ride providers and many other safe driving resources. Order it to be mailed to you or download it one of several formats at:
Finally, according to the Florida Department of Motor Vehicles, Florida drivers 55 or older can save from 3 percent to 10 percent a year for three years by taking the Mature Drivers traffic school course. The savings are mandatory and apply to all insurance companies. The $14.95 cost of the program is more than covered by the savings on the cost of your insurance policy.
You can see more information and sign up here.

May 11, 2021: Please go to our Home page and read Sandra Neidert's moving statement on why she volunteers with Neighbor to Neighbor in the Nenes.
February 21, 2021: Getting the Most Out of Our Masks
The Centers for Disease and Control Prevention (CDC) has published new guidance highlighting findings from two studies on improving the performance of cloth and medical procedure masks. The new guidance emphasizes the importance of mask fit. CDC's Improve the Fit and Filtration of Your Mask to Reduce the Spread of COVID-19 page offers some suggestions to maximize the performance of cloth and procedural masks and a video shows how you can "knot and tuck" a procedural mask to improve fit. (From the Administration for Community Living, acl.gov/covid-19, 2/13/2021)
Go to https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/prevent-getting-sick/mask-fit-and-filtration.html to read this new guidance.
February 11, 2021: For elders who have not received two
and their friends
The Florida Department of Health in Leon County website is open to schedule appointments for the COVID-19 vaccination. Go to: Myvaccine.fl.gov. An elder may also call 866-200-3856 to make an appointment.
Elders who have not had two vaccination shots and who have no plans to get one elsewhere can make appointments. The Department of Health priorities at this time are: people 65 and older; long-term facility residents and staff; healthcare personnel with direct patient contact and individuals extremely vulnerable to COVID-19.
Note that elders with dementia should be vaccinated as soon as possible because their ability to recover is less than the general population’s.
Please tell your neighbors about this ESPECIALLY if you know any who have not had both shots for the vaccination and who do not use a computer. Neighbor to Neighbor in the Nenes will make an appointment at the Department of Health website for anyone who cannot do that themselves. And we will drive elders to their appointments. Call us at 850-901-7818. Vaccinations are occurring at 2965 Municipal Way, Tallahassee, FL 32304.
If you do not meet the priority criteria listed above, sign up now to receive email updates to learn when you will be eligible to receive the vaccine. Go to the web site shown above.
December 28, 2020: No Contact Grocery Shopping
Even though the coronavirus vaccine has arrived in Florida, we still have to take care, perhaps even more care now that the virus is peaking again. Since we still need groceries, no matter the rate of virus spread, here are suggestions for getting groceries the safest way possible. This information is provided courtesy of Indianhead resident and retired Sociology professor Leslie Innis.
To use Publix, Walmart and Target no-contact grocery shopping, you must have a computer, Internet and a credit or debit card. All three stores will assemble a grocery order and have it ready for pick up inside or outside a store. All also deliver to homes.
There are variations among the three providers. For example, Publix adds a 10% fee onto its in-store shopping while Target and Walmart do not. Not all items are available via on-line ordering at Target. There are different minimum order requirements: $10 at Publix and $35 at Walmart. Delivery fees vary: $7.95 at Walmart, $9.99 at Target and Publix is free for orders over $35. Times between ordering and pick up vary.
Go to the on-line store apps and order the groceries including selecting the method of pick up or delivery.
If it is just too complicated to order on-line, call Neighbor to Neighbor in the Nenes (850-901-7818) and we will walk you through it.
December 24, 2020: Watch out for COVID-19 vaccine scams!
As the country begins to distribute COVID-19 vaccines, there's no doubt scammers are already scheming.
Medicare covers the COVID-19 vaccine, so there will be no cost to you. If anyone asks you to share your Medicare Number or pay for access to the vaccine, you can bet it's a scam.
Here's what to know:
- You can't pay to put your name on a list to get the vaccine.
- You can't pay to get early access to a vaccine.
- Don't share your personal or financial information if someone calls, texts, or emails you promising access to the vaccine for a fee.
If you come across a COVID-19 vaccine scam, report it to the Federal Trade Commission or call 1-800-MEDICARE. And check out CDC.gov for trustworthy information on the COVID-19 vaccine.
December 23, 2020: Groceries Available
Neighbor to Neighbor in the Nenes (N3) occasionally learns about basic grocery items available from a food pantry associated with Second Harvest of the Big Bend or from neighborhood gardens. When available, this food can be delivered to residents in Indianhead/Lehigh who have trouble getting enough food for their households.
If you would like to be notified when food is available, please contact N3 now at 850-901-7818 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Also, please let your neighbors know about this, especially those without Internet. Confidentiality guaranteed.
October 12, 2020: Thank You!
Dear Indianhead/Lehigh residents,
Neighbor to Neighbor in the Nenes (N3) is honored and humbled by the response of Indianhead/Lehigh residents to our recent fundraising appeal. Donations from 62 people ranged from $10 - $2,000! Money came in the form of checks, through our web site and some appeared at the front door of our Heechee Nene address. The total amount raised up to October 5th was $7,815. Thank you, everyone!
We will now seek additional support in different ways from inside and outside Indianhead/Lehigh from foundations, donor advised funds and interested individuals. The idea is to have $25,000 in the bank so we can hire a part time coordinator for a year. We will use that year and subsequent years to continue raising funds to support paid staff permanently. Ultimately, we hope to have an endowment fund at the Community Foundation of North Florida.
We are grateful for Indianhead/Lehigh residents’ support for N3’s efforts to help elders stay in their homes as long as possible as they age. No other neighborhood in Tallahassee shows as much empathy for its older residents. Indianhead/Lehigh is awesome!
Marda Messick, Janice Hartwell, Karen Kebart, Betsy Tabac
Board of Directors
Neighbor to Neighbor in the Nenes
P.S. If you would like to help N3 reach its goals by joining our Board of Directors, please call 850-901-7818 or e-mail email@example.com.
September 3, 2020: Talk with a Friend
Don’t let the pandemic get you down. Get to know one of your Indianhead/Lehigh neighbors better. Talk about what’s on your mind. Make a new friend.
Elders over 65 can do that, at no charge, by participating in Neighbor to Neighbor in the Nenes’ Friendly Phone Call service. An elder and a volunteer talk on the phone weekly or less often, depending on what the elder wants. It is a great way to reduce the isolation and loneliness we are all experiencing while socially distancing. Call 850-901-7818 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up!
Just think. Here’s one time when you won’t have to wear a mask!
September 1, 2020: Financial Help With Home Repairs
Seniors and other city residents with annual incomes below $69,840 (two-person household) have a good opportunity for financial help with home repairs through the Tallahassee’s CARES Home Repair Program. (The income cut-off is higher for larger households.) The need for repair assistance must be related to the pandemic such as loss of income or increased health costs. Types of repairs include some plumbing, faulty wiring, roof repair or replacement and must be for the home in which the applicant resides.
The maximum grant is $15,000 and only one repair may be considered. The home must be insured, receiving the property tax homestead exemption and current on property taxes.
Applications should be submitted as soon as possible and funds must be expended no later than December 30, 2020. To begin the application process, set up an account online at:
If assistance is needed, call the city's Housing Division at 850-891-6566 or email email@example.com.
July 22, 2020: This Land is Your Land
There is a little known program available to Tallahassee residents that refunds donations to local political candidates. The idea is to encourage small donors to participate in local elections. Here are details.
- The program applies to contributions to city commission candidates who file with the Supervisor of Elections even if the candidate does not make it past the primary election;
- It covers donations made up to election day;
- The maximum refund is $25 even if more was donated to one or more candidates;
- Only voters registered in Tallahassee may receive refunds;
- Refunds issued only for donations made in the current election cycle;
- A claim form and receipts from candidates’ campaign committees must be submitted to receive refund.
To request a claim form via computer, go to talgov.com, select the Our City tab, then Ethics Board, then half-way down the page, go to Campaign Contribution Refund Program and select request a refund. . . . Residents without access to a computer, call 850-891-6552 to request the form. Leave a message if necessary and someone will return the call. The submission deadline for this year’s campaign cycle is January 20, 2021.
To receive a $25 refund, the form and receipts should be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org. You may also send it via U.S. mail or deliver in person to the Independent Ethics Board, 300 South Adams Street, A-25, Tallahassee, FL 32301. The refund claim form and receipts for this election cycle must be received at the Board no later than January 15, 2021.
April 9, 2020: Creative Thinking About Old-age
Neighbor to Neighbor in the Nenes (N3), Indianhead/Lehigh’s aging-in-place organization, wants residents of any age to use some of their stay-at-home time to think about old age - anything having to do with old age. Topics could include:
Write your thoughts down and send them to our e-mail: email@example.com.
- Anybody’s old age – their own, their grandmothers’, their children’s;
- Any aspect of old age – what it is like to be old; the joys, fears, pleasures, pains of being old;
- Old age at any point in history – current, future, 10,000 years ago;
- Good movies or TV shows involving elders;
- Anything at all about old age.
Articles may include author’s name, a pseudonym or no author at all. We will post as many of the articles we receive as possible to our e-mail lists, Facebook and at our website. The three best articles, judged by three neighborhood elders, will be posted permanently at our website, with credit to the authors if desired.
Another thought: call a neighbor who does not use e-mail and tell him/her about this contest. Promise you will send whatever they write about old age to N3’s e-mail.

It is so great to be recognized!! Last night, Neighbor to Neighbor in the Nenes won the Best Neighborhood Program – Social Improvement award from the City of Tallahassee. Eight other neighborhoods applied for the award.

August 25, 2019: Property tax savings for seniors
Most homeowners are aware of the homestead tax exemption available for all homeowners in Leon County. There are three additional exemptions elders could also take advantage of.
* LOW INCOME SENIOR EXEMPTION - To be eligible for this exemption the highest allowable annual income for 2019 is $30,174. Can reduce the assessed value of house up to $25,000.
*LONG-TERM SENIOR RESIDENT EXEMPTION - 1) Must qualify for the low-income senior exemption, 2) lived in the same house for the last 25 years and 3) have a home market value of less than $250,000. Households meeting these criteria will pay no property taxes.
*COMBAT-RELATED DISABILITY EXEMPTION FOR SENIORS - Must be a vet with partial or total combat-related disability and have an honorable discharge. Tax reduction is tied to amount of disability.

Just a Little Sweetness
From a volunteer who recently received a thank you cake from Neighbor to Neighbor in the Nenes:
"The neighborhood cake lady didn’t make a mere cake for me. She made a masterpiece! Superb chocolate frosting with a tree’s worth of pecans embedded in it...layers of perfect yellow cake that could only have been made from scratch...and even a layer of cherry jam. Absolutely amazing."
