Senior Services

We want to help our participants maintain maximum independence by removing individual and social barriers to healthy living in the community. Our offerings are limited due to safety considerations at the Adult Activity Center, but we are still offering several services.

Willamalane Adult Activity Center has a book and puzzle exchange service to provide activities to those who may be experiencing isolation. The items may be borrowed for one month. This program also offers no-contact van delivery.  Items will be delivered to participants’ doors without them having to leave their homes.

Community Breakfast
All ages. Drop by the Adult Activity Center on Friday, April 16, from 9-10 a.m. for a drive-thru Community Breakfast. This month, we're serving up Quiche Lorraine, country potatoes, and coffee. Suggested cash donation of $3.


Energy Assistance
Low Income Energy Assistance (LIHEAP) at the Adult Activity Center is only for households with at least one individual who is 60+. The person who is 60+ must be the one to apply for the waitlist for energy assistance. LIHEAP helps keep adults age 60 and older safe and healthy through initiatives that assist with energy costs.

For households that do not have a person age 60+, refer to Catholic Community Services for assistance at 541-747-8349.

SHIBA
Things change from year to year, and even though you don’t have to renew your supplement insurance annually, it’s best to review your plan to make sure it’s still the best plan for you. Medicare Supplement plan prices can and do change – as do situations in our own lives. Taking a look at your current situation as well as what each plan has to offer on a yearly basis is a good idea. It will keep you with the best coverage possible.
