The West Ouachita Senior Center is a not-for-profit agency of the United Way, providing education and training, events and recreational activities to the parish. The main goal of these Home and Community-Based Services (HCBS) programs is to offer services and supports that would otherwise not be unavailable, allowing older people to remain in their communities and improve their quality of life. The program expense ratio is calculated by dividing program expenditures by total expenditures (the average for the last three nineties).The Monroe Senior Center has strong ties with local hospitals, social workers, elderly communities, and resources for the elderly throughout the area. You can contact them by phone at 734-241-0404 for pricing, hours, and directions. The Center for the Elderly provides safe and reliable transportation to destinations in Ouachita Parish with wheelchair accessible buses and vans.
Every year, more than 5,000 seniors receive services that help them age in a healthy way at the Center for the Elderly. This program does not provide support 24 hours a day, individually or in combination with other OAAS programs. The Office of Aging and Adult Services (OAAS) administers home and community-based long-term care (HCBS) services through several exemption programs and state plans for seniors or people with disabilities to help them stay in their homes and in the community. Additionally, they offer a free telephone reinsurance program that provides companionship to older people and disabled adults.
