The suggested donation for a meal - whether home delivered, or served at My Place - is $2.00.

In Home Services

OCOA offers services at home if you are at least 60 years of age, reside in Ogemaw County, and meet a few other guidelines set forth by the Aging and Adult Service Agency.

These services include:
  • Homemaking - along with light shopping or errands
  • Personal Care
  • In Home Respite, and
  • Home Delivered Meals

We know it can be difficult letting strangers into your home, but we won't be strangers for long! OCOA's friendly, well-trained in home service staff will work with you to offer these services in a way that suits your personal preferences.

Adult Day Service at The Cottage

 The Cottage is a fun, friendly place for guests to take a break from their caregiver while enjoying activities, good food, companionship, or just a nice rest in a comfy recliner if they wish!
 
Our goal is to offer our guests fun and friendship, while encouraging them to feel at home away from home.
 
The Cottage is open Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday from 8a.m. to 4p.m.; and we now have some limited availability on Fridays.
By reservation only please!
