Area Agency on Aging

Keeping seniors independent.

Sayre Menu April

As one of the programs located at the South Central Council of Governments, the Huerfano/Las Animas Area Agency on Aging provides services to people 60 years or older. Under the mandate of the Older Americans Act of 1965, the AAA was established to provide information and services to all seniors regardless of their financial status.

Since 1973, AAA has been providing services such as Congregate and In-Home Meals, In-Home and Personal Care Services, Legal Referral, Disease Prevention and Health Promotion. Also Available is Advocacy by the Long Term Care Ombudsman and Respite for Caregivers through the National Family Caregivers Support Program. The Huerfano/Las Animas Area Agency on Aging coordinates efforts with all organizations in the bi-county area with regard to senior issues. We can provide information regarding agencies in other parts of Colorado and the nation.

 

Nutrition

Congregate meals are provided at 12:00 noon Monday through Friday at the H.R. Sayre Center at 1222 San Pedro Street, Corazon Square at 201 Raton Street in Trinidad and at the Huerfano Community Center at 928 Russell. We provide meals at our satellite meal sites on different days of the week in Hoehne, Kim and Segundo. A suggested donation of $2.00 is requested . We use the proceeds to expand our meal service throughout our region.

 

In-Home Meals

After an initial consultation with our Senior Services Coordinators, seniors who are homebound due to a disability or recovering from an illness can receive lunch five days a week delivered to their homes. Currently this service is limited to Trinidad and Walsenburg, but with volunteers, we have been able to provide lunches to seniors in our most rural locations. A donation of $2.50 is requested. Guests under 60 years of age are required to pay a fee of $4.00. We use the proceeds to expand our meal services throughout the region.
