Staff and volunteers at the five senior centers throughout Lonoke and Prairie County serve daily lunch meals, lead various activities, and plan regular field trips for our seniors. Senior Centers are located in Lonoke, Carlisle, Des Arc, Cabot and England. Each center offers something a little different centered around lunch being served every weekday at 11:30 am.
Sitting and Chore Services
At this time, we do not offer adult sitting services or chore services. However, we do maintain a list of individuals or agencies that do. LCCA does not contract with or will be held responsible for individuals or agencies listed.
LCCA Staff and Volunteers make reassurance phone calls to assists the growing number of frail and poor seniors who live alone. LCCA staff and volunteers call seniors each weekday to check on their well-being, referring any concerns to appropriate family members, LCCA staff, or other agencies. Early intervention strategies like this can delay or sometimes even prevent nursing home placement, which is costlier than community-based services and allows the seniors to live independently as possible.
Lonoke County Council on Aging staff provide information and resources to meet the needs of homebound and active older people, their family, and caregivers in Lonoke and Prairie County.
We help homebound older people who are struggling to find the services they need to stay in their own home, active older people who want to stay healthy and involved, and family caregivers who need to navigate the maze of available services for their loved ones.
