The Nutrition Program includes providing Meals-On-Wheels for Sioux Falls, Tea and Brandon plus serving over 300 lunches in the dining locations each weekday. You or your group may already be involved in driving for the Meals-On-Wheels program. If not, we always need more volunteers for this worthwhile project. Please call Melissa or Rhonda at 336-6748 if you can help.
Day Break, a day care program for adults, provides care and companionship through therapy, recreational activities, health and medication monitoring (RN on staff) and individualized care. This program provides a safe and stimulating environment for the participant as well as a much-needed respite for the caregiver.
Our staff is knowledgeable about the field of aging and is eager to assist you with your programming needs. Our Speaker’s Bureau can be used for club groups, churches, service clubs, educational lectures or any other needs you might have.
Below is a list of topics and speakers. Call us today if we can be of assistance with a program for you this year. We are also willing to have groups meet in our facility if the time can be accommodated. We’re in the business of Positively Aging!
