Christian Appalachian Project’s Elderly Services Program provides companionship, increased mobility, and support to people who are elderly and individuals with disabilities across Eastern Kentucky.
Participants are visited frequently, and transportation is provided to medical offices, the grocery store, and other appointments. We strive to increase socialization for otherwise isolated elderly community members. We also work to strengthen the network of support for families and agencies already working with these individuals.
The Elderly Housing component completes minor repairs for seniors and individuals with disabilities. Our goal is to make necessary repairs so elderly participants can remain in a safe, warm, and dry home. These repairs may include:
- Handicap ramps
- Floor and wall repair
