Senior Care Resources

   Caring.com

Our website provides comprehensive information on topics like financial support and care options to the senior community and their family members. With them having a better idea of their options, it allows them the security when they make their choices, like being able to find a place near you.

Check out the recently published easiest-to-understand guide on the ins and outs of medicare. This free resource highlights coverage, costs, eligibility and enrollment information, along with answers to some frequently asked questions. Please take a look:
We believe this resource would be beneficial for not only seniors, but also their loved ones, to better understand the medicare system.

  Fresh Produce 
  PUNCH and Hilltop Group have several Community Gardens that are being planted now in May and will very soon have a multitude of fresh vegetables and herbs ready to be harvested by volunteers or yourself.  The produce is all FREE and if you visit a garden and see a weed or two and want to pull them while picking tomatoes, peppers, lettuce, etc. feel free to help out.  If you want exact location information , call (563)323-2765 for more information.
Adopt a Garden Box for you to harvest the produce just for you after you have cared for them during the growing process.  We have 7 raised garden boxes available at First Baptist Church inside a fenced area.  These are marked that they are not open gardens but for those who have adopted them.  Call (563)323-2765 for more information - Adoption is FREE.
