All members are invited to our dining room for a congregate meal prepared each Monday through Friday. All meals are prepared by a certified dietician and consist of ⅓ the adult daily food requirement. These hot and nutritious meals use low sodium recipes and consist of a meat, vegetables, whole wheat roll, fruit and/or dessert. Coffee, iced tea and milk are also served with every meal.
For McCracken County members who are 60 years of age or older, own their own home, and live within the county lines, we offer labor services from trained staff and community volunteers for minor home improvements.
These projects are intended for members who wish to remain in their homes but have needs for accessibility modifications, security, maintenance and general repairs.
Projects are accepted through an application and approval process and are performed on the basis of need. If you’d like to apply for an E-Homes project, you can find that application by clicking ‘Learn More.’
Our Senior Medicare Patrol is here to educate members and help them take an active role in the detection and prevention of health care fraud and abuse.
Alana Miller, our Senior Medicare Patrol Coordinator, along with her staff of volunteers, help educate beneficiaries on how to monitor their accounts and be on the lookout for deceptive healthcare practices, such as:
- Bundling charges to hide non-covered fees.
- Filing bogus claims for products or services never rendered.
- Altering billing codes to inflate Medicare claims.
- Ordering unnecessary products or services to increase revenues.
- & more.
The SMP recruits, trains and guides retired professionals to assist as volunteers to help other seniors become better healthcare consumers.
Members have access to our fitness and billiards room and have the option to attend health and wellness based activities like games, dancing, health presentations and screenings and low-impact exercise routines.
The Senior Center will also plan trips and outings for our members to attend, including day trips, motorcoach trips and other various activities such as the Supper Club. Transportation and locations will vary, so be sure to check the calendar for upcoming opportunities!
For our homebound members, we offer transportation services to assist with medical appointments, grocery store and pharmacy visits and other general errands our members might need. We also offer transportation for your trips to the Senior Center! To request transportation services, contact us today.
Meal delivery is a limited program available to our members in McCracken and Marshall Counties for homebound seniors who are unable to attend in-person or who otherwise qualify. We can offer this service through our partnership with the Meals on Wheels program and through the help of our wonderful volunteers.
With our Telephone Reassurance program, we will contact our homebound members once a week with a friendly call to check-in and chat. Here members are also able to bring any needs or concerns to the staff, whether it be for transportation services or to discuss an E-Home project, we’re here to listen!
