Welcome, we’re glad you stopped by!

We are the Sawyer County Senior Resource Center serving the residents of Sawyer County in the beautiful northwoods of Wisconsin through our main office in Hayward, as well as satellite locations in Stone Lake, Exeland, and Spider Lake. Winter is being served thorugh the Exeland site.

The Senior Resource Center is affiliated with the Greater Wisconsin Agency on Aging Resources (GWAAR), one of three regional agencies on aging in Wisconsin that administer federal and state resources for the development of programs and services for older adults. Their mission is to affect positive change in the quality , efficiency and effectiveness of county and tribal aging units in order to preserve and enhance the quality of life of older adults in Northern Wisconsin. The programs of the Senior Resource Center are designed to achieve this mission.

The Senior Resource Center and its satellite meal site locations offer many programs and services to address our residents’ needs and engage the community:

  • Nutrition through our congregate lunch service and Meals on Wheels Programs.
  • Exercise classes to keep the body strong and moving – Super Seniors and other fitness classes and workshops.
  • Social programs – bingo, cards and dominoes as well as programs and other special interests. Or just a nice place to meet with friends and enjoy a good cup of coffee.
  • The Hayward location also has a handicapped accessible bus that travels within a 5 mile radius of the downtown area and for a small fee transports people to the Center as well as to shopping and medical stops. Reservation appointments must be made in advance by calling the office at (715) 634-3000.
  • Periodic wellness classes on a variety of topics to both inform and help you maintain your independence and health.
  • Foot care services through a partnership with community supporters.
  • Adult Respite Care and Caregiver Support.
  • We partner with local agencies to provide a means to connect you with other services that may meet your individual needs.

We are really proud of what we offer the community. Please have a look around and feel free to contact our Main Office in Hayward at (715) 634-3000 Monday through Friday 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. or any of our satellite sites if you have additional questions. We’re here to help!
