The Heart Of Our Organization
At the heart of our organization are our social services. These needs-based resources are available for Fayette County residents in order to help less-active or homebound older adults. We strive to improve the quality of life for seniors and provide a way for older adults to live independently in their own home as they age. FSS offers subsidized or low-cost programs for eligible seniors residing in Fayette County. Our Care Managers perform assessments along with ongoing monitoring to assist individuals and their families in planning and care.
Meals On Wheels
For older adults who no longer drive, getting to essential medical appointments, the pharmacy, or the grocery store can be a challenge, putting their health and well-being at risk. We provide safe and affordable door-to-door transportation options. Wheelchair accessibility available.
Congregate Program (STARs)
Our STARs program (Seniors Together After Retirement) offers individuals 60 and older an opportunity to come together for socialization, recreational activities, health and wellness classes, and a nutritious meal in The Ultimate Cafe. Transportation to and from the center may also be available to eligible participants if needed.
To many homebound seniors, having a pet is a source of companionship and comfort. The AniMeals program is designed to give our Meals On Wheels clients a little help with the cost of pet food to make sure that maintaining that important bond isn’t an added burden.
In-Home Personal Care/Homemaker Services
This service enables older adults to remain living independently by providing compassionate care from trained personnel who perform simple homemaker and/or personal care tasks, such as light housekeeping or assistance with bathing. Delivered with the utmost personal respect and dignity, our services can also bring much needed respite to caregivers.
Medical Equipment Lending
We lend gently-used medical equipment to individuals, families and caregivers. Equipment is loaned on a first-come first served basis.
