A variety of senior services are available to our elders.   We provide several meals a week and a place to gather at the Senior Center. We provide additional assistance to those 55 years of age and older who live both on and off the reservation.  Examples include:

  • Procuring medical supplies or equipment (wheel chairs, walkers, canes, hospital beds, etc.)
  • Providing transportation to and from appointments and errands
  • Assisting with paperwork, such as Social Security and Medicare applications.
  • Check-in visits
  • Providing referrals to caregivers
  • Medication delivery

Transportation to and from appointments is provided to community members who live within or near the boundaries of the CTUIR and have no other means of transportation and/or require special assistance.  This service is specifically related to non-emergency medical or behavioral health appointments.  For emergencies, dial 911.  (541) 278-7559.

Please note that if you are in need of transport to the ER, you can call 541.276.TAXI in the Pendleton area and receive a free transport.
For information regarding the Senior Center, please call (541) 276-0296. For all other inquires regarding senior services, please call (541) 278-7559.
