The Eureka Senior Center serves lunch from 11:30 to 12:30. They also serve an occasional breakfast or dinner. Menus are published for the month and distributed at the Senior Center. Homemade bread and desserts baked daily are the highlight of the meal for many. A delicious salad bar is available in addition to the main course. The Senior Center makes accommodations to diabetic and other special dietary needs.
Have Van! Will Travel!
The Eureka Senior Center provides local transportation to and from the center, shopping, banking and rides to the clinic on weekdays. The center offers a w/c accessible van for those in need. The van also travels to Elko once a month for shopping, dr. appointments and other social activities. Special event trips are planned occasionally and scheduled with Fannie Komp Senior Center.
We deliver homebound meals, within 5-mile radius of the center on a daily basis. The valley route, which accommodates all Diamond Valley residents that live on Eureka County maintained roads, is delivered Tuesday and Fridays. Homebound meals are available to individuals who are homebound due to medical conditions and temporarily to those with periodic illnesses for up to one month.
Do you have household chores that you have difficulty doing? The Eureka Senior Center has a housekeeping program that will assist you in doing those chores. This program is offered on a sliding income scale to seniors needing assistance doing weekly chores as well as yearly heavy cleaning. You supply the cleaning materials and we will send you the assistance.
