Supplemental Healthcare

On Friday, August 4, six volunteers from Supplemental Health Care worked in our kitchen and Adult Day Health center. In the kitchen, three volunteers packed 150 boxes of food for Saturday’s meal delivery. In Adult Day Health, three more volunteers did arts and crafts, completed sewing projects, and played Uno with 30 seniors. We were so happy to have them here engaging with our seniors.

ABOUT US

With 100 Baby Boomers turning 65 every day, Atlanta’s senior population is rapidly expanding and is expected to increase 65.8% by 2030. Additionally, Fulton County has the highest percentage of seniors living in poverty (12%), living alone (nearly 50%), and having difficulty leaving the home (25%) when compared to the rest of the region (Atlanta Regional Commission, 2012).

OUR PROGRAMS

Meal Services: Our flagship program includes home-delivered meals, congregate meals, and emergency pantry bags.

Home Repair Services: We provide free and low-cost home repairs so that seniors can stay in their own homes and communities as they age.

Adult Day Health Center: Our Adult Day Health Center provides specialized care for seniors with Alzheimer’s or dementia. Our Center is a medical model and licensed by the State of Georgia.

Neighborhood Senior Centers: We manage six Fulton County Neighborhood Senior Centers, providing a place of community, support, wellness and activity for seniors age 60 or older.

Thank you Supplemental Health Care!
