HISTORY

The vision of a few individuals in the late 70's became a reality in the 80's.  Ground was broken on September 26, 1980 by Board members John Fields, Vivian Woods, Aletha Hart, M.W. Betts, Ether Bono, Vic Losson, Helen Hunolt, Anna Mae Eliiot, and Lucille Pierceall.  T

The Monroe City Senior Nutrition Center was incorporated in 1977 and began services in 1982.  It was established and is currently maintained and operated for the improvement of health of all seniors and handicapped residents age 18-59 and is governed by a local Board of Directors.

Our goal is to be a "home away from home" by providing food, information and referral, socialization, educational and recreational activities to the elderly and handicapped adults in Monroe City, Palmyra, Perry, Philadelphia, Center, and the surrounding area between these towns.  The main objective is to allow seniors and handicapped adults to remain active and independent in their homes thus preventing premature institutionalization.

Monroe City Senior Center Services

The Monroe City Senior Nutrition Center is a non-profit organization supported by meal contributions, private donations, the Northeast Area Agency on Aging, the Mark Twain United Way Agency, and various grants.

Our meal cost is approximately $7.00 per meal.  However, for those 60 years of age or older or to handicapped individuals age 18-59 we do suggest a contribution of $4.00 or whatever you can give towards the cost.  Cost for those under 60 years of age is $7.00 per meal.

 

EVERYONE IS WELCOME!

 

*No handicapped person age 18-59 or senior 60+ years will be refused a meal due to their lack of contribution.

Guide to Independent Living in Missouri


Approximately 17.3% of Missouri’s 6.1 million residents are aged 65 and older, which is above the national median of 16.5%. The state has an average cost of living index that’s about 14 points below the national average of 100, suggesting the typical Missourian gets more for their money than most Americans. Missouri taxes Social Security but it doesn’t kick in until the senior earns $85,000 annually, and there are also reasonably generous private and public pension exemptions. 

Missourians who choose independent living are relatively capable seniors who like residing in communities that have been designed with the needs of older residents in mind. Some live in apartments, others in duplexes or single-family homes that have been purpose-built or adapted for seniors, including features such as ramps, grab rails and smaller rooms that make cleaning easier. Neighbors often meet in their community’s clubhouse, which typically has at least one restaurant and multiple rooms for games, leisure programs and fitness classes. Some communities also have spas.

This guide looks at the costs of independent living in Missouri and some surrounding states. It also considers the costs of other types of care and lists some senior-friendly resources.
