In addition to offering two beautiful senior centers, the City of Royal Oak offers several programs to residents age 50 and over. The Adjacent Generational Exchange (AGE) program provides assistance to frail elderly citizens. AGE is sponsored by a grant from Beaumont Hospital. Royal Oak also offers meal programs, including Meals on Wheels to residents in need. The Royal Oak Senior Essential Services (ROSES) program provides supportive services to residents over age 62 who own their homes and reside alone, with a spouse, or a disabled adult child. ROSES provides assistance for basic household tasks, home repairs, and assistance with daily activities. Additionally, the city provides transportation services to elderly residents who may need rides to attend doctor appointments or run errands. There is a suggested contribution of $3 for each one-way trip and $4 for each round-trip. Additionally, the Senior Center publishes The Senior Times, a free monthly newsletter for our residents aged SO plus.

Currently, the City of Royal Oak collaborates with various agencies to provide the best services and programs to our senior citizens. The city partners with Beaumont Health to provide services though the AGE program. Through Emerald Food Services, Meals on Wheels are provided to residents who need food assistance. Meals are prepared daily at the Troy Community Center. Oakland County’s Meals on_Wheels program is funded by the Area Agency on Aging 1-B. Royal Oak also works directly with the Suburban Mobility Authority for Regional Transportation (SMART) to provide transportation services to senior citizens. The Royal Oak Recreation department provides various activities for seniors, such as dance classes, day trips to the museum, or extended trips throughout the country. The Royal Oak Public Library also delivers books to residents who are home-bound due to long-term or temporary disability.
