Senior News Online

Senior News provides readers with senior related-news and daily activities submitted by area senior centers. 

View January/February edition here

Last Online Senior News Edition: About a year ago, we made a decision to move the Senior News to a digital-online format that positively impacted the funds needed to sustain our Senior Services that are vital to our aging community. With view rate being extremely low, we have decided to discontinue the online publication after this January/February 2019 edition.

The great news is… In the place of Senior News, we plan to create a client e-news focused more on client success stories and community resources/links and will add community event links to your already preferred Senior Center. To sign up for this e-mail, visit http://bit.ly/metrocrestclienews.

Individuals can contact their preferred Senior Center for more details about drop-in activities or use the online links below to view center-specific information: Carrollton Senior CenterCoppell Senior & Community CenterFarmers Branch Senior Center

Home Delivered Meals for Local Seniors

Home delivered meals are available weekdays for delivery to qualifying seniors, must be 65 years or older, on a short or long-term basis. Meals are prepared by a local restaurant and are not available in specific dietary restrictions.

Transportation Keeps Seniors on the Move

Drivers in our lift equipped vans, as well as volunteers driving their own vehicles, provide 'door-through-door' rides to local appointments for seniors 65+ or disabled individuals living in our service area of Carrollton, Farmers Branch, Addison, Coppell and city of Dallas in Denton County.

The area of service extends 5 miles outside the city limits of Carrollton, Farmers Branch, Addison and Coppell. 

Rides are provided: Monday - Friday 9:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

Here's a Comprehensive Guide on Transportation for Seniors made possible by SeniorLiving.org.

We appreciate the many volunteers who make a wide range of repairs possible for local seniors.

Live Safely: Minor Home Repairs & Safety Aids

To help seniors live independently and safely in their homes, we provide assistance with minor home repairs and install safety aids, such as grab bars, wheelchair ramps and wireless doorbells. Volunteers provide many of the services under the coordination of our Home Repair Coordinator. Yard cleanup, fence repairs and exterior painting may also be available.

Senior pay for the materials and volunteers install them.
Monthly corporate sponsorships are available during 2017. Call Tracy Eubanks at 972-446-2101.

Food for Seniors through Eat Smart, Live Strong

Any senior may qualify to visit the food pantry to select food. For low-income seniors who qualify to receive monthly People and Nutrition (PAN) commodity food boxes we now provide supplies of fresh vegetables, fruits and other foods through our Eat Smart, Live Strong program. For recipients 60 years & older. 

This expanded service is made possible by generous sponsors. Previous sponsors include Baylor Medical Center at Carrollton, Research Across America, PlainsCapital, and Purdy McGuire.
