Starting this month, the Questa Del Rio News will publish the Senior Center Lunch Menu. This menu applies to all Senior Centers in Taos County and the meals are cooked fresh at each location. Lunches are available for anyone over age 60 and cost $1.50. Those under 60 are welcome to join for lunch at a cost of $7.50.
Meals-on-Wheels are provided, also for $1.50, to frail, homebound, or at-risk elderly. To qualify, an in-home assessment is conducted by project staff and also at the request of the client’s physician, indicating that this person is not able to attend the Senior Center.
Other services include free workshops, free transportation and free Senior exercise classes. Anyone wishing to take advantage of their Senior services must be over 60 years old, and must first register at the center. This takes only a few minutes and can be done by arriving a few minutes early prior to the lunch or other event.
