Services are available to homebound individuals who are age 60 or over and the spouse of a 60 years old or older individual regardless of age. Services may be available to individuals who are under age 60 with disabilities if they reside with the homebound older individual. Services are targeted to those in greatest social and economic need with particular attention to low income individuals, minority individuals, those in rural communities, those with limited English proficiency and those at risk of institutional care.
CONGREGATE DINING CENTERS:
A little over 400 meals per day are provided at dining centers to individuals that otherwise might not have access to a nutritious meal. Beyond meal provision, related nutrition services are available at congregate settings which help to keep older participants healthy and prevent the need for more costly medical interventions. Services include nutrition screening, education, nutrition assessment and counseling as appropriate. The dining center also provides opportunities for social engagement and meaningful volunteer roles, which contribute to overall participant health and well-being.
