We serve nutritionally balanced lunches in a congregate setting at the Patch Center. Our dining room has cafe-style seating and is bright and welcoming. Lunch is served from 11:30am-12:30pm, Monday through Friday. All adults age 55+ or anyone age 18+ with a disability are welcome.
Commodity Food Boxes
The Commodity Supplemental Food Program (CSFP) works to improve the health of low-income seniors by supplementing their diets with nutritious USDA Foods. Once a month we receive and distribute commodity food boxes, at both our Water Tower Hub and Patch Neighborhood Center, that contain foods with good sources of the nutrients typically lacking in the diets of the population. Recipients must be age 60+ and qualify under the income guidelines.
Community Day Trips
We take seasonal day trips to a variety of venues around St. Louis. Day trip locations include parks, theaters, restaurants, shops, malls, and more.
Social Engagement & Activities
Social engagement and community connection help promote healthy aging and independence for older adults. The Senior Program at our Patch Neighborhood Center is open daily 8am-2pm to help foster these community connections by providing a space for fun, open social interaction at the Center. These activities at the Patch Center include: bingo, arts & crafts, trivia, movies/documentaries, music, games, guest speakers, and more.
We offer a number physical fitness activities with the goal of reaching health benefits such as lowering stress, improving balance and stability, and increasing a sense of calm and well-being. Theses activities include: yoga, tai chi, zumba, line dancing, nutrition classes, and more.
Student nurses make bi-weekly visits to the Patch Center each month. Student nurses check BMI, blood pressure and blood glucose, as well as educate clients on common health issues and topics.
