Elderly Programs/Services

 

The Cochiti Elder Program provides a comprehensive system of nutritional and support services that are responsive to the needs of our elders. Nutritional services include congregate and home delivered meals, nutrition education, and health screening. Supportive services include information and assistance, transportation, home visits, and many other services that contribute to the welfare of our elders.

 

The Elder Center provides a place where the elders enjoy recreational activities, social gatherings, congregate meals and many other services that are geared towards decreasing isolation. The Elder Center is centrally located where elders can access multiple services through the Tribal Departments, Library, Health Clinic and Public Transportation. The Elder Center houses the meal program where elders are provided meals five days a week with a variety of nutritious and tasteful meals.
