Mobile Meals - Transylvania County

This program serves a mid-day meal five days a week to homebound older adults in the upper end of Transylvania County. The meals are prepared by Transylvania Regional Hospital and transported to the Quebec Congregate Meal Site for delivery to eligible participants. The meals meet one third of the Recommended Daily Allowance for senior citizens. Friendly volunteers deliver meals right to the door. Funding is provided by the Home and Community Care Block Grant and local donations. For more information, call (828) 884-2255

Liquid Nutrition Supplement Program

Ensure/Glucerna liquid nutritional supplement products are available at little or no cost to low income Transylvania County residents with documented medical risks. A needs statement from a healthcare professional is required. Funding is generously provided by Lake Toxaway Charities, Home and Community Care Block Grant, and other local donations.

SOS Program - Temporarily closed while awaiting funding support

In 2021, thanks to a generous grant from the WNC Bridge Foundation, WNCSource opened a new afternoon activities program for older adults at the Quebec Community Center in Lake Toxaway – Serve our Seniors (SOS).

The SOS program offered an afternoon of fun and interesting activities for older adults that promoted senior wellness, social interaction with friends, and the ability to connect with local community resources and providers. SOS activities included:

  • Exercise programs
  • Computer classes
  • Crafts/Board Games
  • Community presentations on crime safety, healthy living, nutrition, and other topics of interest to seniors
  • Local representatives from aging services, DSS, medical professionals, and county government will host workshops and host open office days to meet with seniors interested in their services.
The grant funding has expired and the SOS program is temporarily closed. WNCSource is seeking new and ongoing support to reopen this worthwhile program.  If you have suggestions or would like to contribute to providing rural seniors with an opportunity to connect to each other and their community, please reach out to our Development Officer or visit our donations page today!
