Thousands of nutritionally balanced meals are provided each year to senior citizens in Cheboygan County through our senior citizen centers located in Cheboygan and Wolverine. Each center provides an opportunity for seniors to socialize & participate in various programs, activities and services while enjoying a delicious meal. Meals are offered five days per week for a suggested donation of $3.50 for those 60+. Under the age of 60, a set cost of $8.00 per meal is required. Both sites are open to the public for dining with no age restrictions.
Home delivered meals *
Each year, thousands of nutritional-balanced homemade meals (hot, frozen, liquid and shelf stable) are delivered to the homebound seniors unable to prepare their own meals. As the meals are delivered, it allows us a way of checking on the frail and elderly to make sure they are safe.
Homemaking Services *
Homemaking services are provided to seniors unable to perform household tasks such as light housekeeping, meal preparation, and shopping.
Respite Services *
Respite services are provided to relieve a caregiver for two or three hours during the day to give the caregiver a chance to provide for themselves.
Personal Care Services *
An aide will help a client with personal grooming such as hair washing, bathing, dressing, simple meal preparation, changing bed linens, and laundry.
