Senior Companionship Program
This special service is a way we keep “homebound” clients connected with the outside world. Preble County Council on Aging volunteers call to check on an individual daily or as needed. This might be a call to just say “hello, how are you feeling today?” or the volunteer might remind the individual to take their medicine, etc. It’s a way of staying in touch with a person on a friendly and caring level. A volunteer might read a book or newspaper to the individual. Again, this is a way to keep a senior connected to the outside world and have some social time with another person.
For more information on above Supportive Services, Volunteering, and/or Support Group Meetings, please call the Preble County Council on Aging at (937) 456-4947.
Meals On Wheels
The Meals On Wheels Program is also known as our Home Delivered Meals (HDM) Program. With this program, hot nutritious meals are delivered to older adults at home. All meals provide at least one-third of the government’s daily recommended dietary allowances. Meal deliverers check on the welfare of the client and are trained to report any health or other problems noticed during the visit. Call us for eligibility requirements.
