Senior its best

Coweta and Fayette are excellent retirement destinations because of the lifestyle, recreational and healthcare opportunities, natural surroundings, and climate.

  Numerous retirement communities cater to active seniors, offering independent and assisted living options as well as a plethora of events organized by senior citizen associations.

  All seniors 55 years of age and older can take advantage of a variety of services and activities offered by Coweta County’s eight senior centers. At the East Coweta Community Center in Senoia, the Panther Creek Center in Sargent, the Welcome Community Center in Welcome, the Central Community Center near Thomas Crossroads, and the Madras Center in Madras, members get together every week for games, music, arts and crafts, and camaraderie. Holidays and birthdays are celebrated with covered dish luncheons and parties. Every day, Monday through Friday, members can participate in the same activities, such breakfast and lunch, at the Tommy Thompson Senior Center in Newnan.

  The newest of the eight are the Canongate Community Center, between Blake Bass Middle School and Canongate Elementary School on Pete Road and the Leroy H. Johnson Community Center on Highway 16 in Senoia.

Both education and enjoyment are routinely provided by informative lecturers and musical performances. Even blood pressure checks for seniors are available at certain locations. Seniors who are homebound can take use of the organization’s Meals on Wheels program, which is run out of the Thompson Center in Newnan. An annual Christmas dinner and spring picnic at the Coweta County Fairgrounds and Conference Center are open to all senior citizens of Coweta County. Program funding is provided by the Coweta County Commission.

Fayette Senior Services

  Fayette Senior programs (FSS), which was established in 1978 and offers a variety of life-improving programs to Fayette County seniors 50 years of age and above, is the organization that operates The Gathering Place in Peachtree City and The Life Enrichment Center in Fayetteville.

  Fayette Senior Services is built on social services. These need-based solutions are available to residents of Fayette County for senior individuals who are less active or housebound. Fayette Senior Services aims to improve the quality of life for senior adults and provide them with the option to live freely in their own homes. FSS provides free or inexpensive programs to Fayette County seniors who meet eligibility requirements. Their care managers provide continuous monitoring and assessments to support individuals and their families with care planning.

  For a significant number of senior citizens in Fayette County, operating a vehicle is an impractical endeavor. As the leading low-cost transportation service provider in the county, FSS’s crew provides daily transportation for seniors to necessary doctor visits, dialysis, and pharmaceutical pick-ups. Fayette Senior Services is the only affordable option available to a large number of individuals in our region to receive therapies that could save their lives. Transportation costs are determined by a sliding scale fee that is based on an individual’s income. A first intake and evaluation will be completed before employing transportation services, and the fee will depend on several factors.

  It’s hard to think that so many elderly residents of Fayette County are lonely and in need of a friendly smile, in addition to going without food because they find it difficult to make meals. That is what MOW, or Meals on Wheels, does. It provides many senior residents in Fayette County who are housebound with companionship and meal delivery services. Meals are delivered by a committed group of volunteers. These visits enable housebound seniors to maintain their independence in their own homes. Only Fayette Senior Services provides Meals On Wheels in Fayette County. MOW provides companionship in addition to a hot lunch and a health examination each time a meal is delivered.

  Since 2009, Fayette Senior Services has been gathering and distributing pet food donations on a monthly basis for the pets of Meals on Wheels recipients. Many of our Meals On Wheels users find it challenging to feed their dogs when they are unable to leave their homes. Having dogs provides solace and company for a large number of elderly individuals who are confined to their homes. Many members of the community have benefited from the AniMeals program offered by Fayette Senior Services by being able to buy and obtain pet food that they would not have otherwise been able to give to their animals. Both the animals themselves and the homebound seniors who adore and care for them benefit from this initiative.

At the exclusive Life Enrichment Center, adults 50 and over can socialize with friends, challenge their minds, refresh their bodies, and feel better. Seniors are empowered by FSS, no question about it. Giving someone the resources they require to grow stronger and more confident is known as empowerment, and it includes all of the daily services that FSS offers to seniors. They strive to meet the needs and preferences of our members and the community, all the while playing a significant role in the lives of seniors and inspiring and engaging them to age well and live well into their golden years.

  The two Life Enrichment Centers operated by Fayette Senior Services, located in Peachtree City and Fayetteville, respectively, provide a vibrant, friendly, and upbeat atmosphere. Every month, they offer over a hundred programs at these two locations, covering a wide range of topics such as social, educational, recreational, entertainment, and fitness. They genuinely cater to the interests of each member and are constantly looking for new methods to inform and amuse them. The facilities aim to keep seniors engaged, active, and creating new memories by offering a wide choice of life- enriching activities.

  For an additional $10 per month, members can access the fitness center at the FSS.

Furthermore, FSS offers an extensive selection of exercise classes, including stretching, Tai Chi, yoga, line dancing, chair aerobics, personal training, walking groups, and more. Monday through Friday, from 7:30 am to 4 pm, is when the fitness center is open.
