The Jackson County Senior Center is proud to offer services outside our facility, as well. For those seniors who are home bound, we are happy to provide home delivery meals, friendly visits, and telephone reassurances - just to name a few of our outreach offerings that bring socialization to our seniors and peace of mind to their families.
The program will strive to reach the frail, elderly, isolated, handicapped; help the elderly that are sixty years and older maintain their dignity in their own homes; inform the Senior Citizens of Services and Resources available to them--such as Mental Health, County Health Department, Department of Family and Children Services, Food Stamps, SSI, Social Security, Medicaid, Medicare, Community Care, Home Health Care, etc. We will provide Nutrition and Exercise Programs.
The Jackson County Aging Program will work toward reaching these goals by Outreach, Rerouting of Vans, Recruiting of Volunteers (Community and Senior Citizens) and organizing car pools.
