Senior Centers in Polk County

Polk County Senior Services wants to ensure that all older adults that visit our senior centers have access to social, educational and recreational programs that help to enhance their quality of life. Senior Centers in Polk County are located in Osceola, Polk, Shelby and Stromsburg. A noon meal is available Monday - Friday at all the senior centers for a suggested contribution for individuals 60 years of age or older. Meals are also available for Individuals under age 60 for a fee. Please call a senior center one day in advance to make a reservation. Modified diets are available with a doctor's orders.

There are individual, extenuating circumstances that may qualify someone to receive a noon meal for a suggested donation. Please call and visit with the Polk County Program Manager for details.

Special services and activities at the senior centers include: educational presentations, health assessments, regular blood pressure checks, pedicure clinics, exercise classes, craft classes, pool tournaments, BINGO and much more.

Home Delivered Meals

Meals are available throughout Polk County. Each meal is one-third of the recommended daily nutritional needs for an individual. Home Delivered Meals are available 7-days a week in the Stromsburg and Osceola area and Monday - Friday in all other communities. Modified diets are available with a doctor's orders.

Call your local senior center by 8 a.m. to order a meal or the day before to set up a schedule for meals. Call 402-764-8227 and visit with the Polk County Program Manager for complete details.

Mom's Meals

Through a contract brokered with Mom's Meals, home delivered meals are offered for a suggested contribution. These meals are available to qualifying senior residents who reside within Polk County. Call Polk County Senior Services for more information.

Busy Wheels

This service operates in both Stromsburg and Osceola. Both have their own governing board and officers. An individual calls a senior center to make arrangements and drivers are dispatched from the senior center. Stromsburg has ten volunteers that drive 1/2 a day each week and three relief drivers. Osceola has three drivers and is looking for more. This may be just the volunteer position for you.

Call and visit with the Stromsburg or Osceola Center Manager for more information.
