What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Many of our community's elderly citizens are faced with entering a nursing home due to health issues when they would really like to remain in their home. Not only is this oftentimes more appropriate for the client, but also much less expensive.

Meals on Wheels

Our Wheels on Wheels program delivers hot or frozen, nutritionally balanced meals on a daily basis to eligible elderly and disabled adults. More than a meal, our trained drivers provide a friendly and daily personal contact that improves our client’s and their family’s sense of well-being. We also offer congregate dining opportunities where seniors can socialize with others while enjoying a meal. Funding sources include Area Agency on Aging, Title III of the Older Americans Act, and United Way.

For non-medical help and assistance there is nothing better than our Visiting Home Care services. Whether you or a loved one needs assistance with bathing, dressing or meal preparation or just need some extra help in light housekeeping, we can help seniors remain at home when health problems arise. VHC has staff on call 24 hours a day in order to address the ongoing needs of our clients. Services include bathing, shampooing, dressing, meal preparation, vacuuming, cleaning, cooking and errands. Upon enrolling in our program, a registered nurse will be scheduled to visit you and your family to develop a written individualized Plan of Care. Registered Nurses visit your home on a regular basis to evaluate staff performance and reassess your personal care needs.

Lifeline is an easy-to-use medical alert service designed to reduce the risk of living alone. In the event of a fall or emergency, help is available at the push of a button. The Lifeline Personal Help Button connects you to a highly trained Personal Response Associate who can access your situation and send help quickly - 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. If emergency services are needed, they can dispatch assistance, retrieve relevant medical information from your profile, and even let emergency personnel know if you have a pet, all while you're on the line. There is no equipment to buy and no contract to sign.

These protective services allow for in-home intervention by professional case managers, who assist individuals age 60 years and older in establishing a network of services that promote continued independent living.

As part of our nutrition program, this service, offered in Montgomery, Greene, Miami and Darke counties, affords individuals age 60 and older the opportunity to have a hot, nutritional lunch Monday through Friday while enjoying the company of their peers. Family style meals are offered at multiple locations served piping hot from steam tables. Diners may also choose from a limited menu at participating restaurants primarily in rural areas. While there is a suggested donation of $2, meals are free to the consumer. The program is entirely funded by Area Agency on Aging PSA2 with Title III funding under the Older American's Act.

Many of our senior clients depend on their furry friends for love and companionship, but are unable to financially support the needs of a pet. Our newest program helps alleviate that burden by supplying dog and cat food on a monthly basis. Pet ownership has been scientifically proven to reduce blood pressure, improve overall health and give seniors a reason to exercise. Now in it's third year, this program relies entirely on corporate support, foundation grants and private donations from individuals. Meals on Wheels America has provided grants annually since it's inception and Day Air Credit Union joined the effort in 2021.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Senior Resource Connection provides services which enable our elderly clients to continue living in their own home through bouts of illness and the overall aging process. Our ultimate goal is to provide a variety of services that promote healthy aging and helps prevent accidents and illnesses.

Our home-based services focus on keeping our elderly clients safe and comfortable living in their own home. These include a geriatric nurse assessment, home delivered meals, emergency response systems, medication dispensers, case management, financial payee assistance, caregiver support, care coordination, and home health aides that also help with house cleaning & shopping. While these services are very beneficial to the individual, the community also benefits. Many inner city homes are occupied by the elderly. When a homeowner enters a facility, the home is sometimes abandoned due to lack of value, repairs, marketability, or friends/family that are willing to discard the contents and sell the property. Our services help the elderly continue to occupy their home leaving one less vacant property in the community.
