Nutrition Programs

Funded by the Older Americans Act, the Nutrition Program provides eligible older adults a nutritionally balanced meal at Senior Centers and various satellite sites. Meals are served by a network of providers located throughout A12AA’s Planning Service Area. For a list of providers and dining sites, see Other Services. The primary target population for the nutrition program is older adults 60+, residing in Amador, Calaveras, Tuolumne and Mariposa Counties, who are in greatest social-economic need and would benefit from a hot nutritional meal.

Congregate Nutrition Program

The Congregate Nutrition Centers offer a daily nutritional meal to adults 60+ years and their spouses, socialization opportunities, exercise, nutrition education, and a variety of other life-enhancing programs.

Home Delivered Meal Program

To qualify for the Home Delivered Meal Program, a person must be at least 60 years of age or older and the spouse of a 60+ participant who resides within the PSA and has an impairment that would prevent attendance at a congregate nutrition center. To determine eligibility of a meals on wheels participant, an intake worker will visit the home and complete an assessment. If determined eligible, hot and/or frozen nutritional meals will be delivered to the older adult.

Medication Management

Provides direct medication management and community education services to adults aged 60 years of age or older. Registered Nurses help train the patient and caregiver in the use of medication and volunteer pharmacists assist seniors by offering medication reviews.

Balance, Strength and Mobility Programs

The goal of the balance, strength and mobility programs is to provide seniors with the education and tools needed to lead healthy lives and reduce their risk of falling.
