Everyone has the ability to Age Well. This is the mission of an Orange County community service aimed at helping seniors age well. Their goal is to ensure that no senior goes hungry and everyone has the resources necessary for their well-being. They offer services such as Meals on Wheels, assistance with tax preparation, transportation to medical appointments, and free community events.
Age Well provides services at 10 Senior Centers across Orange County. They offer customized, local programs to older adults in their area. Each center caters to all seniors, from healthy, active seniors looking for social outings and exercise classes to home-bound seniors who need in-home assistance.
Congregate Senior Lunch Program
Congregate is more than just a grab-and-go, food distribution line. As the name suggests, the Congregate Senior Lunch program encourages older adults to get together and socialize for lunches at all 10 of the Age Well Senior Center locations. Hot, fresh-cooked meals are available on weekdays, some holidays excluded, and are designed by a registered dietitian to ensure they are balanced and nutritious.
