Senior Dining includes both Senior Dining Centers and home delivered meals. The program provides low cost nutritious meals meeting one third of the recommended dietary allowance to persons 60 years of age and older, with emphasis placed on outreaching frail, isolated, homebound and disadvantaged older adults.
Senior Dining Centers are located at 10 sites throughout Waukesha County. In addition to a hot noon meal, the Senior Dining Centers provide nutrition education, health information and screening, outreach, and support to older adults and their families. Social and recreational activities are also provided at the dining center.
Senior Dining Centers are open to individuals age 60 or older and their spouse, regardless of their age. Limited government grants cover a portion of the meal costs. Confidential donations are accepted at each dining center. The suggested donation is $4.00. No one will be denied a meal because of inability to contribute.
Reservations are required at least 24 hours in advance. Call the dining center where you will eat between 10:00 am and 1:00 pm. If the dining center is closed, call the Aging and Disability Resource Center of Waukesha County (ADRC) at (262) 548-7826.
Transportation to the dining centers may be available through the ADRC Shared-Fare Taxi and RideLine programs for $1.00 each way. This fare subsidy must be authorized in advance. Call the ADRC at (262) 548-7848 for more information.
The Home Delivered Meals program provides a hot noon meal delivered to frail and homebound older adults who are unable to prepare their own meal. The meals are delivered by volunteers who provide an outside contact and support for homebound individuals.
