Wood Co. Committee on Aging continues modified operations

Press Staff Writer

        Based upon information and directives from the State of Ohio, all Wood County Committee on Aging Senior Center locations, including Walbridge, Pemberville, Rossford, Perrysburg, Grand Rapids, Wayne, North Baltimore, and the Wood County Senior Center in Bowling Green, will remain closed to the general public through Friday, May 29.           WCCOA will continue to offer modified services during this time, including:
        • Medical escort provided on a case-by-case basis (but not for clients who are symptomatic of the virus).
        • Home-delivered meal service will continue. All home-delivered meal participants will receive one hot lunch delivered daily, and will be offered a weekly drop of seven frozen meals to reheat for dinner.
        Staff and volunteers who will be delivering home delivered meals will not be entering client homes unless absolutely necessary to make the delivery. Staff/volunteers will also be instructed to remain at least 6 feet away from a client if they need to enter the residence. Clients will be asked to have a table/surface near the inside of the door or on their front porch or in their garage for meals to be placed upon at delivering. In order to assure that the client is well, the staff/volunteer will have a visual of the client or at minimum voice interaction through the door.
        Wood County residents age 60+ who did not frequent a senior center in Wood County may inquire about participating in the home-delivered meal programs by calling 419-353-5661 or emailing WCCOA@wccoa.net.
