FEATURED MEMBER: Seniors on Center
MOUNT GILEAD — Seniors on Center is a hub of activity downtown and has served senior adults since 1974.
“Our purpose here is to keep everybody 60 years and older in their own home as long as we can. We provide home delivered meals and transportation for medical and grocery store and drug store trips. We take them to vote or do their banking,” Director Pam Eastep said.
There is no charge for those services. But donations are encouraged as the center relies on local funding for about 80 percent of its operational costs.
At present the center is closed due to COVID-19. But otherwise it’s a bustling center.
“We have plenty of activities going on, a congregate meal site at lunch time. We do a lot of bingo and card playing,” Eastep said.
“Every Monday night is a music night with a meal provided. That’s a great time for our seniors….”
