Participants are requested to call ahead to book a meal. A client may come as often or as little as they wish and can pay for meals individually or purchase a 12 meal ticket ahead of time. Meals are $ 6.00. Volunteers are available to offer assistance to clients while attending the meal program.
Transportation service is available for seniors who have medical appointments out of town. The senior client pays a fee to cover the cost of fuel, use of vehicle and parking. The driver provides service from the client’s home to the appointment location.
Clients are asked to contact the coordinator well in advance to give adequate time to arrange for a driver. The coordinator will collect the fee prior to the scheduled trip and a receipt will be issued.
Transportation for cancer patients is coordinated with the South Central Cancer Resource office.
Most seniors plan to remain in their own homes or apartments for as long as possible. If they need assistance with home maintenance, they can contact the coordinator for names of service providers.
Services include general housecleaning, laundry, snow removal, lawn care, painting and handyman repairs. Seniors who request these services are responsible to pay the worker an agreed rate for the service provided.
