The Senior Department has qualified trained staff to assist seniors, caregivers, family and friends with programs and services to meet your needs. Other programs offered in the department vary from social to service to referral. The following is a list of programs and services.
Join us and attend one of our Senior Community Lunches held every month from October through April. The Senior Community Lunch program is designed to gather senior citizens on a monthly basis from all 12 communities within Bloom Township for an affordable, hot and nutritious meal. Each month, there is a theme of which seniors can participate in, entertainment and raffle.
Cost for the lunch is $4.00 for Bloom Township residents and $8.00 for out of township residents. Tickets must be purchased in advance in the Senior Department by Friday preceding the lunch date. The luncheons are held at the Glenwoodie Golf Club, located at 19301 S. State Street in Glenwood.
