Senior and Disability Services 

Senior and Disability Services determines eligibility for medical and service programs to assist people with disabilities 18-64 years of age as well as older adults 65 years or older. Some of their programs (such as those funded through the Older Americans Act), serve people as early as 60 years of age.

If eligible, people may qualify for full or limited medical benefits, Lifeline, transportation services, in-home care services, subsidized payment for services in community based care facilities such as adult foster care, assisted living, and residential care. If determined eligible for services, Senior and Disability Services also facilitates supplemental payment for nursing home care.

SHIBA Senior Health Insurance Benefits Assistance Program

The Senior Health Insurance Benefits Assistance Program (SHIBA) is a statewide network of trained volunteers who educate, assist, and serve as advocates for people with Medicare. SHIBA volunteers help Medicare beneficiaries understand their rights and options in health insurance so that they can make informed decisions. Meet with a SHIBA counselor at the Riverfront Community Center by calling 541-812-0849.

Meals on Wheels

The Meals on Wheels Program is designed for homebound seniors, and the disabled under 60, who receive Medicaid services and are unable to get to a dining room in their community. Our home delivered meals are delivered by volunteer drivers.

Meals on Wheels also serves hot, nutritious midday meals at the Riverfront Community Center and offers companionship to seniors who are at least 60 years old, their spouses, and to Native Americans who are 55 years of age or older.
