SENIOR NUTRITION PROGRAM

Senior Nutrition consists of two programs: Congregate Nutrition and Homebound Delivery. 

Congregate Nutrition allows for seniors to attend sites in Danville, Martinsville, Henry County, Patrick County and Pittsylvania County. These meal sites provide not only a hot mid-day meal, but also opportunities for socialization and recreation that may alleviate isolation and loneliness. Weekly programs offered at the sites include health and wellness, exercise and nutrition.

Homebound Nutrition provides meals to eligible clients or other eligible participants at the clients' place of residence. Meals are delivered to the home five days a week all year.

Both of these programs are free, however, donations are accepted and strongly encouraged. Persons over 60 must meet certain eligibility factors which are determined by the Southern Area Agency on Aging. Major factors to consider in determining eligibility are:

v  Over 60 years of age or the spouse of an eligible person

v  Income level

v  Living arrangements

v  Physical health

v  Mental health

To have an eligibility assessment completed for yourself or if you would like to suggest someone who needs the services of the Senior Nutrition Program, please contact the Southern Area Agency on Aging by calling 800.468.4571
