The Elderly Center is located in the Housing Division at N8651 Maplewood St.
Our building is a beautiful new center brown with stone decor. The meal site can safely seat 90 participants. An elder is defined as those who are 55 years and older. We are open from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.
The Elderly Center meal site and home-delivered meals will close during bad weather conditions (blizzards, heavy fog, icy roads and -30 degree wind chill). Cancellation information can be found on WLUK TV-11 Good Day Wisconsin, WTCH 960 AM and WOWN 99.3 FM.
The Elderly Center offers services to family caregivers in our service area (the 1856 treaty boundaries which includes the townships of Bartelme and Red Springs). A 'Loan Closet' has items available for your use such as walkers, canes, commodes and wheelchairs. These items can be used for as long as you need them but must be returned to the Elderly Center in good repair.
Respite care is also available to the primary caregiver. The service will pay for respite care per week to a person of your choice. The person will be compensated to come in and give the primary caregiver a break to run errands or have time off. We have a small library of books and videos for the caregiver and their loved one to view.
Please call the Elderly Center for more information about what the family caregiver services may offer.
