SENIOR CITIZENS NUTRITION/RECREATION

Partially funded by a grant from AAAL, Older Americans Act, Illinois Department of Aging

The Senior Citizens Programs provide services to area senior citizens, 60 years of age and over. Nutrition centers prepare and serve meals to senior citizens who are unable to attend one of the meal sites. The meals are designed to provide at least 1/3 of the recommended daily nutritional needs of senior citizens.

Meals are provided at a suggested donation rate.  Additional activities at the meal site are designed to help keep the seniors active and involved. These activities may include recreational, informational, and health related topics.

Transportation is available to senior citizens if they are unable to operate a vehicle or do not have a vehicle to use. The main purpose of the transportation program is to provide transport to the meals sites. Transportation for medical and shopping needs are also provided whenever possible. Transportation is also provided at a suggested donation rate.

The goal of the Senior Program is to keep area senior citizens active and in their own homes as long as possible. The reduction of institutional dependency is achieved through services and activities that promote good health and social interaction.
