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 and participate in various programs, activities and services while enjoying a delicious meal. Meals are offered five days per week for a suggested donation.
Home delivered meals
Each year, thousands of hot, nutritional, frozen, and liquid meals are delivered to the homebound seniors unable to prepare their own meals. As the meals are delivered each day, it allows us a way of checking on the frail and elderly to make sure they are safe.
Homemaking services are provided to seniors unable to perform household tasks such as light housekeeping, meal preparation, and shopping.
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.
A senior companion volunteer will visit, play cards or games, make telephone calls, write letters, start a meal, and take a client shopping or to the senior center for various activities.
