SUMMARY OF SERVICES

WE ARE MORE THAN JUST A FREE MEAL!

 

Listed below are some of the services we now offer:

 

Caregiver Support
Services for Caregivers of tribal seniors include education on caring for seniors, relief for primary caregivers of seniors and quarterly education caring for the nutritional health of the senior. Our program has two caregiver coordinators. They are responsible for going into the homes of home bound seniors to provide the caregivers with the necessary tools and assistance to best care for the older adults under their care. 

Our Caregiver Coordinators also present the Fit-After-50 exercise program and quarterly nutrition education at some of the congregate sites.

Journey to Nutrition
There is a new program called “Journey to Nutritional Needs” where our homebound seniors will have an opportunity to go on a field trip to buy nutritious foods and they will receive monthly nutrition education on their journey.
 

 

Information & Referrals
Information and referrals to programs that meet the individual needs of the senior or caregiver. Guest speakers on safety, accident prevention and other services available to aid seniors.

Education for Seniors

The RSBCIHI Senior Program has taken surveys and done a needs assessment for the health educational needs and interest of our program participants. 
Based on the needs assessment, we will be educating our seniors on issues such as:

Each quarter, there will be an educational theme for our seniors. There will be nutrition presentations at each congregate site once a quarter. The same educational materials will be given to our homebound program participants in their lunches.
 
Our senior program offers education and referrals to a variety of information and services available for seniors and their caregivers. Some examples are:
