Services Overview

Congregate Meals

Share a meal, as well as laughs, stories and friendship, with others at one of the Terrebonne Council on Aging’s five lunch sites located throughout the parish. For qualifying clients, Congregate Meals not only provide nutrition that meet federal dietary guidelines; they also provide seniors with the companionship and interaction they need to keep them healthy and active – both physically and mentally.

Nutrition Education

There is no question that proper nutrition and a healthy lifestyle directly impacts the overall health and well-being of our elders. Our Nutrition Education program is aimed at helping our elders and their families with proper eating habits like limiting salt and fats, getting a balance of necessary nutrients, eating enough and learning to eat healthy regardless of budget.

Information and Assistance

TCOA’s Information and Assistance program is a service that provides elderly individuals with current information on opportunities and services available in the community. This service also assesses the problems and/or capacities of the individuals, and links them to opportunities that are available to them.

Material Aid

Our material aid program is designed to provide a limited supply of incontinent supplies and nutritional supplements. On occasion, when donated there could be fresh fruit and other items.

Recreation

Everyone needs a little fun in their lives — no matter what age. That’s why we offer a variety of opportunities for elders to get together for socialization, recreation, and fun.

TCOA offers a variety of recreational activities at our senior centers throughout the parish.

Some of the activities offered include:
