Services Provided at Senior Citizens Community Center
Here at the Senior Center we provide many services to the elderly as well as the rest of the community.
Nutrition Couseling is provided through the Senior Center, Monroe County Health Department, and the Missouri University Extension Office.
Your family may not be together when a disaster strikes so it is important to plan in advance: how you will get to a safe place; how you will contact one another; how you will get back together; and what you will do in different situations. In case of emergencies, we offer disaster services.
Heating and Cooling Center
During those very hot or cold days, the Senior Center is here for you! Stop on by to cool off during those hot summer days or drop by for a while and warm up during those winter days with a cup of hot coffee.
Elder Abuse Education
Elder Abuse Education is provided through the Senior Center and the Monroe County Health Department. Elder Abuse is a very serious matter. If you suspect an elderly or disabled person is being abused or financially exploited, call the Elder Abuse and Neglect hotline (1-800-392-0210), 7 a.m. to 12 a.m., seven days a week.
The Commodity Supplemental Food Programs (CSFP) is a Federally funded program, which works to improve the health of low-income elderly people at least 60 years of age by supplementing their diets with nutritious USDA foods. USDA purchases food and makes it available to CSFP state agencies.
Health education is provided by the Monroe County Health Department to county residents and community groups. A wide range of resources and classes are available on such topics as physical activity, teen and adult smoking cessation, worksite wellness, nutrition and tobacco. Blood Pressure Clinics are also given at the Center every 1st Wednesday of the month from 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 Noon.
