Senior Programs

 

In Mono County, we offer a wide array of services to older adults. Our goal is to help older adults live healthy, independent lives.

 

 To serve our senior population Mono County operates the following programs:

  • Nutrition Programs (Congregate and Home Delivery)
  • Transportation
  • Senior Center Activities
  • Healthy Ideas Program
  • Information & Assistance

The Antelope Valley Senior Center is a hub for senior activities and provides local seniors with much more than just a gathering place.  Paid staff provide assistance and make the community senior center "user friendly".

Antelope Valley Senior Center offers congregate meals, where seniors can enjoy camaraderie and a low-cost, hot, nutritious meal in a pleasant atmosphere. 

Antelope Valley Thrift Store & Recycling is located next to the Senior Center.  Some of the proceeds from the store helps to provide materials and supplies for the Senior Center.

Meals on Wheels is the home delivery meals program provided for adults age 60 and above.  Five hot and/or frozen meals are delivered to home-bound or isolated participants weekly in all of the communities throughout Mono County. 

Transportation Services are available for home-bound or isolated individuals and provide seniors with transportation to their non-emergency medical appointments and other support services. 

Bus Passes are also available for access to community resources.

Healthy Ideas (Identifying Depression, Empowering Activities for Seniors) ensures older adults get the help they need to manage symptoms of depression and live full lives.

Healthy IDEAS improves quality of life by:

  • Screening for symptoms of depression and assessing their severity
  • Educating older adults and caregivers about depression
  • Linking older adults to primary care and mental health providers
  • Empowering older adults to manage their depression through a behavioral activation approach that encourages involvement in meaningful activities

Eastern Sierra Area Agency on Aging (ESAAA) also provides additional services such as:

  • Telephone Reassurance
  • Family Caregiver Support Program
  • Long-term Care Ombudsman Services
  • Legal Assistance
