Notice from Senior Services of Van Buren County
In the interest of keeping our seniors as safe as possible, Senior Services of Van Buren County has decided not to open our Activity Centers until there is a vaccine available. While we miss all of our seniors very much, we believe this is the right decision given the age range of our participants. We will publicize on Facebook, area newspapers and our website before the reopening of our centers before take place.
Although our Activities Centers and offices remain closed to the public, our staff is continuing their work to serve the needs of our seniors.
We are still offering
Carewatch Services which include home meal deliveries to qualifying seniors, DHS and SS assistance, utility assistance, help with finding in-home care, assistance in home repairs for caregivers, referrals for seniors suffering from depression, help with paperwork, referrals to agencies who help with various needs, and more.
Friendly phone calls program by volunteers to seniors who are lonely.
If you have questions about any of these services or find yourself in need of assistance, please contact us at 269-637-3607. Please leave a message as we are checking messages frequently, and will get back to you as soon as possible.
