The Jackson County Senior Center is proud to offer services outside our facility, as well. For those seniors who are home bound, we are happy to provide home delivery meals, friendly visits, and telephone reassurances - just to name a few of our outreach offerings that bring socialization to our seniors and peace of mind to their families.
The program will strive to reach the frail, elderly, isolated, handicapped; help the elderly that are sixty years and older maintain their dignity in their own homes; inform the Senior Citizens of Services and Resources available to them--such as Mental Health, County Health Department, Department of Family and Children Services, Food Stamps, SSI, Social Security, Medicaid, Medicare, Community Care, Home Health Care, etc. We will provide Nutrition and Exercise Programs.
The Jackson County Aging Program will work toward reaching these goals by Outreach, Rerouting of Vans, Recruiting of Volunteers (Community and Senior Citizens) and organizing car pools.

We had our first wedding ever here at the Senior Center in April 2018. They said they met here, so they wanted to get married here. You never know what might happen here! It was wonderful day, and they are a wonderful couple. :)
