Mission Statement  

The mission of the Franklin County Council on Aging is to enable and empower the aging citizens of Frankfort and Franklin County to maintain dignity and independence in their homes for as long as possible by providing opportunities for socialization, health promotion, benefits counseling, transportation services, recreation and exercise programs, adult day care, caregiver support, and nutritious meals.

Background Statement The present day Frankfort/Franklin County Senior Citizens Center has blossomed from seeds sewn by KSU's Dr. Frank Bean, back in 1965. Dr. Bean gathered community leaders together to educate them about the new "Older Americans Act," recently passed by congress.  This legislation provided the framework and initial funding for senior citizens centers across the country. Rebecca Richie , representing the Altrusa Club, liked what she heard.  She worked with Rodney Dempsey, executive director of the local chamber of commerce, to find out how many residents of Franklin County was age 60 or over.  When she learned there were enough to make the project worthwhile, she got the wheels turning. Miss Patsy Brawner (Carter) served as the center's first director when they met on the second floor of the Red Cross building on Washington Street.The center was established just to give senior citizens a place to meet and socialize. From there the center moved to the basement of what was then Southern Hotel on Second Street.The basement's dark walls gave rise to the nickname "Mole Hole." A coat of white wash and some second-hand furniture provided an improvement in the atmosphere. The numbers of people that came and the variety of activities continued to increase.Under director Viola Brawner, the Meals on Wheels program was initiated. From it's small beginning in the basement of the old Southern Hotel on Second Street, the center has flourished despite floods and fires and funding uncertainties to become a strong and vigorous organization now headquartered at its present home on Medical Heights Drive.  The success of the senior citizens programs in Franklin County can be attributed to a number of individuals, public officials and private citizens alike. Mary Belle Dailey, director of the center when the new building was constructed in 1990 on Medical Heights Drive, tells of the tremendous generosity of a very supportive community.  Fiscal Court sponsored a $369,000 federal grant, and the remainder to complete the project was provided through the generosity of many businesses and individuals and especially by Mr. Ralph Mills who donated money to build the new center.  The new day care center was named the Sower Day Care Center in honor of Frank W. and Minnie Lynn Sower because of the tremendous support given by Mr. Sower to make this program a vital service to the senior community.
Impact Statement Data from the 2010 Census shows there are 8,876 residents in Franklin County that are 60 years of age or older.Of the 8,876 residents eligible to receive services in Franklin County, 2,500, or 28 percent, are registered clients of our agency. The FCCOA has a vision that dignity is inherent to all individuals in our society and that our older citizens should have the opportunity to fully participate in all aspects of community life, be able to maintain their health and independence, and remain in their own homes for as long as possible. Last year, through the Elder Nutrition program, our center served 10,501 congregate meals, 19,660 home delivered meals, and 1,333 Adult Day Care meals for a total of 31,494 meals.  Adult Day Care served 18 clients and provided 17,168 units of service. Our annual goals always include increasing our membership and the number of clients that we serve in the Franklin County community. Elder Nutrition,  and the Adult Day Care Programs provide essential services for our senior citizens. These programs are what help us accomplish our goal of keeping our seniors in their homes for as long as possible. If the Elder Nutrition Program were not fully funded there would be a tremendous loss in the ability of our elderly population to remain in their own homes. This program also assures that someone is there to check on the health and security of the recipient.  The caregivers for our Adult Day Care clients have to decide if their loved one can function in our Adult Day Care. The alternative is either an assisted living facility or a nursing home.

Our Adult daycare program provides supervision, social stimulation, and light physical activities in a structured setting during a portion of the day for physically disabled or frail individuals, including stroke or Alzheimer’s patients, age sixty and over. If services are provided for respite relief for the caregiver, services may be available to individuals of any age with a diagnosis of Alzheimer’s or related disorder or disability, as confirmed by a written statement from a physician. The high ratio of staff to clients creates a safe and nurturing environment. Our services include home cooked meals plus morning and afternoon snacks. Fees for Adult Day services are based on a sliding scale according to the client’s income.

Program Short Term Success
Short term success is simply the satisfaction of providing a safe place for clients who are physically disable, frail or suffer from dementia or alzheimer's to enable their caregivers the opportunity to work and continue their lives without having to worry about their loved ones being home alone.
Program Long term Success
The long term success of this program would be measured by the increase in the number of clients we serve to ensure we are reaching more and more seniors along with their caregivers who can benefit from our services.
Description A hot, nutritious meal is delivered to homebound clients in Franklin County, Monday through Friday, who have no one to cook for them. Eligible clients must be sixty years of age or older and a physician must certify that they can benefit from the meals prepared by our kitchen staff. Our program not only provides a hot, nutritious meal to clients, but it also provides a way to check on the condition of the client and for them to have a friendly visit from our meals drivers.
