Elderly Services

Offered in cooperation with the Community Senior Citizens Center at 1469 Sweitzer Street in Greenville, the Senior Assistance Project offers a variety of activities for persons age 55 and over. These include bingo, ceramics, card playing and guest speakers. Contact the Senior Lifeline at (937) 548-2727 for more information.

Congregate Meals

Persons age 60 and over may receive a well-balanced mid-day meal, five days per week served by a friendly staff. The menu is approved by registered dieticians and meets one-third of the Food and Drug Administration’s Recommended Daily Allowance. Meals are served at the Darke County office, the Community Center in New Madison, and the Fleur de Lis Apartment complex in Versailles. Please call (937) 548-2727 to reserve a meal. All reservations must be made by 1:00 p.m. one day in advance.

There is no charge for the meals. Voluntary confidential contributions are solicited to offset the costs of this service. A suggested donation of $1.75 is requested per meal. However, no one is denied a meal due to their inability or unwillingness to contribute.

Home Delivered Meals

Home delivered meals are prepared at the central kitchen facility and delivered to homebound older adults throughout Darke County. Potential customers must be age 60 or older, homebound, and without assistance from family and friends. A Senior Assistance Project staff member must make an assessment in the home before meal delivery can begin. Persons with disabilities, those ages 75 or over and low-income older adults receive priority. Contact the Community Action Partnership Senior Program at (937) 548-2727 Monday through Friday 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. A home visit will be scheduled to determine your need for this service.

There is no charge for the meals. Persons receiving home-delivered meals can make voluntary, confidential contributions toward the costs of the service. A suggested donation of $2.00 per meal is asked. However, no one is denied due to their inability or unwillingness to donate.

Homemaker Services

Persons age 60 or over who lack appropriate support from family and friends to achieve or maintain a clean, safe and healthy environment are eligible to receive homemaker services. Customers will be asked to sign a homemaker sheet listing the tasks the homemaker completed and the homemaker’s arrival and departure times. Contact the Senior Lifeline at (937) 548-2727 so schedule an appointment to determine your eligibility for this service.

The suggested donation for the homemaker services is based on income. This amount will be determined during the in-home assessment.

General Transportation

The Senior Assistance Project offers transportation for persons age 60 or over to congregate meal sites, medical facilities, social service agencies, banks, grocery stores, pharmacies and post offices. Persons are eligible if they have no other means of transportation through family, friends or self. Transportation must be scheduled 24 hours in advance by contacting the Senior Lifeline at (937) 548-2727. If the Senior Assistance Project is unable to provide the requested transportation, the Information and Referral Specialist will work with the client by referring he or she to other appropriate programs or agencies.

The suggested donation for medical transportation is $2.00 per round trip.

Senior Medical Transportation

Medical transportation is provided for persons age 60 or over who have no assistance from family or friends and cannot book transportation through any other program or agency in Darke County. The program seeks to “fill the gap” for persons who otherwise may not be able to receive necessary medical treatment due to lack to transportation to a medical facility. Senior Medical Transportation is provided on an on-call basis and donations are accepted. Twenty-four hour notice is preferred. To make an appointment, call the Senior Lifeline at (937) 548-2727.

The suggested donation for medical transportation is $2.00 per round trip.
