Changes to be made in Senior Café program

UNION CITY, IN--LifeStream Services, the Aging and Disability Resource Center for East Central Indiana, will make some changes in its Senior Café programs in Anderson, Portland and Union City, IN in February.

The changes, prompted by an ongoing examination of services, client participation and challenging budgets, are the first in several years that affect Senior Cafes, which encourage good nutrition for older adults.

The following changes will be made:

* Feb. 8 will be the last serving day for Central School Community Café at the Central School Apartments in Anderson.
* Beginning Feb. 11, service will be changed from five to three days a week at the following Senior Cafes: Hoosier Place Café in Union City (Monday, Thursday, Friday) and Portland Place Café in Portland (Monday, Wednesday, Friday).

“We will continue to work diligently to assure the best, most effective programming and service to East Central Indiana older adults and individuals with physical disabilities,” said Joy Winslow, nutrition manager.

Senior Cafes will continue to operate as usual at the following sites: Delaware County Senior Citizens Center and Gillespie Towers in Muncie; Marion-Grant Senior Center in Marion; New Castle Community Center in New Castle; Southdale Towers, Longfellow Senior Apartments and Geater Community Center all in Anderson; Pendleton Public Library Community Room in Pendleton, and Indiana University Blackford County Hospital in Hartford City. For service times or reservations, call LifeStream, (765) 759-1121 or (800) 589-1121.

Adults 60 and up can eat on a donation basis at the Cafes; people younger than 60 can also enjoy lunch for a fee.
LifeStream serves about 60,000 meals a year at Senior Cafes and also delivers an additional 133,000 meals to home-bound individuals.
