Meeting the Needs of Our Diverse Clients: Why Culture Counts in Columbus, Ohio

Many older adults and the chronically ill are at increased nutritional and health risks due to low-income, uninsured/underinsured status, social isolation, multiple medications, food insecurity, and a variety of other factors. Our method of treating clients holistically ensures each client has their nutritional, health care, emotional and psychological needs met.

Our Carrie’s Café Model was developed by Café Plus, a senior center model developed by NISC member Mather LifeWays, and this prototype is spreading around the United States and even as far away as Japan. Like Mather’s other Café Plus locations, Carrie’s Cafe offers freshly prepared, made-toorder meals and more, such as shuttle service for customers and activities.
