The OOA-Outreach office is staffed to assist our seniors on everyday issues dealing with setting up assisted transportation, helping prepare benefits screening forms, providing information and making referrals to our seniors.
Hours of office operation are 8 am to 4:30 pm Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. Occasionally the staff person will be at an offsite/outreach location so if it is critical you see them, please call to make an appointment to ensure they are at the center.
Promptly at 11:30 each day, the staff of Douglas Cherokee serves an inexpensive and nutritious lunch for members and guests in the center. Also from this activity, the Meals on Wheels program is able to prepare and deliver meals to local seniors who are a part of that program.
One does not have to be a member to eat lunch at the center, but you must call in before 10 am and put your name on the list to eat as a visitor. Price of the meal is $5.00 and comes with a beverage.
