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.



FREE 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.–3 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


Tax Aide
Please call us at 541-736-4419 to schedule an appointment.
  • People with an appointment will need to stop by at the Adult Activity Center: 215 West C Street, Springfield, Oregon 97477.  On Jan. 26, 27, or 28, 2-4 p.m. to pick up their Intake/Interview forms via a drive-through.
  • When checking in to your appointment, only ONE client at a time will be allowed in the tax preparation room (masks are required).
  • Appointments are 20-30 minutes long to check IDs, review the Intake/Interview form they will have filled out at home, and scanning documents which are then returned to them.  Clients must leave the building until we phone them to return, roughly 60-90 minutes after they leave, BUT they must be available by phone for any preparer questions during that time.
  • Do not arrive for an appointment more than 5-10 minutes early. You may not stay in the Willamalane building while waiting for the return to be completed. When phoned, return to Willamalane Adult Activity Center and one of the two preparers on-site will go through the return with the client, have them sign the permission to e-file, and be given a paper copy of the return for their records.

Gift Shop
Our gift shop specializes in beautiful handcrafted items created by community artisans at unbeatable prices. As a consignment shop, your purchase helps to support both the artisans and the Adult Activity Center. In-person programs will remain closed while Lane County is in Extreme Risk status, but you can still browse our featured items here and call to order at 541-736-4444.

Winter 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. 

Please contact Terre Olsen at 541-736-4406 for more information. For households that do not have a person age 60+, you can refer them to Catholic Community Services for assistance at 541-747-8349.


Senior Meals
Willamalane and Senior & Disability Services transitioned our usual Senior Meals lunch to a “to-go” pick up instead of a sit-down meal. 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.

To sign up, please call our Springfield Site Coordinators for Senior Meals at 541-736-4408 and Meals on Wheels (MOW) at 541-736-4424 .


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.     

For more information please contact: Jake Gariepy at 541-736-4536 or by email: Jake.GARIEPY@willamalane.org
