Senior Services

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


Computer Access
The Willamalane Adult Activity Center has three computer desks in the lobby, which visitors can use to access the internet. All three computers can be reserved in 25-minute increments for up to two hours at a time. Computers are spaced at least six feet apart and will be cleaned between users. You can drop in to use a computer on a first-come, first-served basis, or you can reserve a computer in advance to make sure it is available when you visit. Closed due to freeze.




Book & Puzzle Delivery

Willamalane Adult Activity Center has a book and puzzle exchange service to provide activities to those who may be experiencing isolation. This program offers a no-contact van delivery service to seniors. From 11 a.m.–2 p.m. on Wednesdays, items will be delivered to participants’ doors without them having to leave their homes. The items may be borrowed for one month.

To sign up, please call the front desk at 541-736-4444 to be put on a weekly list or sign up online

Participants can arrive at the parking lot from 11:30 a.m.–1 p.m. from Monday–Friday to pick up lunch. The program is offered to people ages 60+; lunch is free with a suggested donation of $3.

SHIBA
Open enrollment for Medicare begins October 15 and runs through December 7, 2020.  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.
