Home Away From Home
Maintaining or improving the quality of life is paramount to the mission of the agency. KRFDC helps adults, senior citizens, their families, and their caregivers solve problems that threaten independence, dignity, and quality of life. Many of the agency’s programs enable participants to avoid, or at least delay, the need for institutionalized care at a nursing home.
KRFDC’s four Senior Citizens Centers provide seniors sixty years and older with socialization, recreation, exercise programs, and nutritious meals. Seniors enjoy participating in exercise programs, using the exercise equipment, recreational games, field trips, educational and health screening programs, and many other activities. These activities enable seniors to remain active and live longer, healthier, more independent lives. Other services provided through the centers are: information and assistance, transportation, advocacy, counseling, homemaker, outreach, and legal assistance.

The Senior Citizens Centers are funded through grants provided by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Administration for Children and Families and are passed through the Bluegrass Area Development District. The United Way of the Bluegrass provides funding for the Clark County Center, Richmond Center, and Berea Center.
