Serving Coshocton County
The Coshocton Senior Center plays an important role in the lives of Coshocton County senior citizens offering many activities and programs for our senior citizen population. From nutritious hot meals to computer classes the center has an activity for all enjoying their golden years. Nutrition is an important part of remaining healthy. The Senior Center meets this need with a daily Congregate Meal program. Seniors are invited to attend a noon lunch at the center for a pleasant dining experience and socialization for a voluntary contribution of $2 for those age 60+. Many days entertainment is provided. Those needing transportation will even be picked up, brought to the Senior Center and returned home! Homebound seniors may receive a nutritious meal through the Home Delivered Meal program with a hot meal delivered weekdays to the home with the added benefit of someone checking in on the person's well-being. For supplemental nutritional needs the Senior Center sponsors a food commodity program where eligible seniors may receive a 30 - 35 lb food box each month filled with cereal, juice, canned meats, fruits, and vegetables as well as other food staples. The commodity program does have income guidelines so please contact the center for more details.
Along with nutrition, exercise is important to overall health. The senior center offers a wide variety of classes for different fitness levels. While at the center various activities and services are available such as health assessments, computer and internet access, line dancing, informative presentations and special events. Seniors wishing to enjoy their creative flair can participate in crafts, and special activities. A prescription assistance program is offered to those who qualify to assist in obtaining medical prescriptions at little or no charge. Finally, those with special needs can take advantage of transportation, and legal services, We believe these services are essential in the daily lives of our seniors and help promote and sustain a healthy, more active lifestyle. Volunteer opportunities are also available through the Coshocton Senior Volunteer program. Those wanting to use their lifeskills to give back to their community may be placed at various organizations and non-profits in the community.
