Senior centers will stay closed through June


All Wood County Committee on Aging senior center locations — Perrysburg, Rossford, Walbridge, Grand
Rapids, Pemberville, Wayne, North Baltimore and the Wood County Senior Center in Bowling Green — will
remain closed to the general public through June 30.
WCCOA will continue to offer modified services during this time.
Online programming is being offered via the WCCOA Facebook page and the Zoom meeting platform.
For a schedule of these programs and/or additional information, contact [email protected] or call the
office at 419-353-5661 or 800-367-4935.
WCCOA is reinforcing the importance of participants remaining at home and avoiding large gatherings.
Older adults who participate at the senior center congregate dining sites to take advantage of
home-delivered meals during this time.
WCCOA has put a plan in place for modified operations for services during the Coronavirus pandemic.
This plan calls for the following:
· Medical escort will be provided on a case by case basis (but not for clients who are symptomatic of the
· All senior centerlocations will be closed to participants and the general public.
· Home-delivered meal service will continue.
· All home delivered meal participants will receive one hot lunch delivered daily and will be offered a
weekly drop of seven frozen meals to reheat for dinner.
· Staff and volunteers who will be delivering home-delivered meals will not be entering client homes
unless absolutely necessary to make the delivery. Staff / volunteers will also be instructed to remain
at least 6-feet away from a client if they need to enter the residence. The clients will be asked to
have a table/surface near the inside of the door or on their front porch/in their garage for meals to be
placed upon at delivering. In order to assure that the client is well, the staff/volunteer will have a
visual of the client or at minimum voice interaction through the door.
For those Wood County residents age 60 and older who do not currently frequent a Senior Center in Wood
County and who opt to follow the recommendation to remain at home, avoiding crowds and public places,
and who may find that they would benefit from participating in the home delivered meals programs, call
WCCOA at 419-353-5661 or via email at [email protected] for additional information.
