Older adults in the Cedar Rapids area have a new option for finding meals while senior centers are closed during the coronavirus pandemic. Encore Café – the award-winning pop-up café for older adults – will transition to offering frozen meal pickups starting next week.
To help promote the health and well-being of our consumers, partners and staff, Heritage Area Agency on Aging will close its office beginning Friday, March 20. Heritage staff will work remotely during this time, maintaining normal work hours between 8 am – 5 pm.
We plan to reopen the office in mid-April, but may adjust the date based on the guidance of public health officials.
Older adults and adults with chronic health conditions are at a higher risk of becoming ill from COVID-19. Heritage Area Agency on Aging has compiled a list of helpful resources to learn more about the virus and stay current on the latest news in our region.
