For more than twenty-five years, Senior Services North Fulton has been helping meet the needs of the growing population of older adults who live in the northern part of Georgia’s most populous county.
They’ve delivered and served thousands upon thousands of meals, provided transportation to and from medical appointments, and assisted with a wide variety of in-home services. Every day, hundreds of Alpharetta and Milton seniors find a home away from home at the two local senior centers. The following services are offered to help seniors in North Fulton have a better quality of life:
MEALS ON WHEELS (MOW)
They provide Meals on Wheels (MOW) to older adults who have difficulty grocery shopping or preparing meals for themselves. Volunteers deliver nutritious meals to seniors Monday through Friday, and for those who need weekend meals, two additional meals will be delivered on Friday and may be kept in the refrigerator and heated over the weekend. In addition, all seniors who receive Meals on Wheels will receive 3 “shelf stable meals” throughout the year which can be kept in their pantry for use on days when inclement weather makes it impossible for volunteers to deliver.
MOW for Pets: Senior Services North Fulton understands the bond and companionship seniors have with their pets. The goal of the Meals on Wheels for Pets program is to provide support to home-bound seniors in helping them feed and care for their pets. Our focus is to assist individuals in purchasing all or part of their monthly pet food and cat litter needs.
Their Care Managers conduct home visits with seniors to evaluate their needs and determine appropriate services. The goal is to help older adults live as independently as possible. They offer assistance with one of the following services: Personal Care Assistance, Homemaker Services, or Respite Care. To qualify for services, the older adult must be 60 years of age or older, reside in North Fulton and have a physical need that requires assistance.
TRANSPORTATION OPTIONS PROGRAM (TOPS)
The TOPS program is designed to provide medical transportation for seniors age 60+ in the Senior Services North Fulton service area: Alpharetta, Johns Creek, Milton, Mountain Park, Roswell and Sandy Springs. Trips can be arranged for appointments with doctors, dentists, eye doctors, for treatments ordered by your doctor—or to get a flu shot.
Senior Services North Fulton operates senior centers in Alpharetta, Milton, Roswell, and Sandy Springs, providing a home away from home for hundreds of citizens each week. At these very popular facilities, seniors find companionship and an opportunity to take part in activities that range from art and photography to chess and physical exercise classes.
