Currently, the Waupaca County Dept of Health & Human Services Volunteer Program provides a majority of services to seniors. Over 80,000 meals are delivered annually to home bound residents alone! Lunch is served Monday-Friday at the seven Senior Nutrition Sites located in Clintonville, Iola, Manawa, Marion, New London, Waupaca & Weyauwega.
We've also expanded our outreach for volunteers in the Health, Wellness & Prevention Program! In partnership with Wisconsin Institute for Healthy Aging (WIHA), trained volunteers co-facilitate evidence based workshops throughout Waupaca County.
These workshops are offered through the Aging & Disability Resource Center (ADRC). Help Seniors make positive changes in their life by leading workshops geared for their health & well being!
The Mission of the Aging & Disability Resource Center (ADRC) is:
To be a resourceful place of information and respectful provider of support for residents of Waupaca County who are elderly and disabled and their caregivers and to help them achieve dignity and quality of life through maximum independence and choice.
While the current Long Term Care System provides quality assessment and services, the long term care network is often a complicated maze for people seeking services for the elderly and persons with disabilities. The Aging and Disability Resource Center initiative, will build on the strengths of the current system and enhance opportunities for people to receive services in a seamless and highly responsive manner.
