Nutrition Services

Eligible seniors may receive the meals at no cost; however, there is a suggested donation to help with the costs of providing the meals.

For specific information regarding the Meal programs; including days of operation, service coverage and, eligibility; you may contact the your local Senior Center or County Council on Aging Coordinator in your area.

Disease Prevention & Health Promotion

Your local Senior Center’s provide a variety of educational materials as well as classes to help promote health and well being. In addition, to providing nutritious meals, many of the centers also provide Nutrition counseling and education. Throughout the year, Centers may also offer blood pressure/blood sugar checks, specialty clinics, such as podiatry, skin cancer, glaucoma and hearing screens, and flu, pneumonia and H1N1 shots. In addition, centers have exercise equipment and offer exercise classes, such as the PACE program, Yoga, Tai chi, Kick stick, and Wii Fit.

Five County AAA offers the Chronic Disease Self Management Program, also known, in Utah, as Living Well with Chronic Conditions. This evidence based program developed by Stanford University provides tools to help individuals better manage their chronic condition and decrease the need for medical intervention. The classes are for any individual suffering from a chronic condition, such as arthritis, MS, Diabetes, Stroke, Heart disease, chronic pain, etc.

Five County AAA can also provide additional information regarding disease prevention and health promotion; including other community resources, brochures, books and DVD’s.
