Versailles Health Care Center, a skilled nursing and rehabilitation center, recently held a Homeward Bound Graduation to honor the 185 patients they helped return to the community in 2014. The Homeward Bound programs help patients return to their homes or to their maximum independence level. Homeward Bound rehabilitation programs include: Cardiac Recovery, Continence Improvement, Contracture Management, Fall Management, Orthopedic-Fracture Recovery, Outpatient Therapy, Pain Management, Patient and Family Training and Education, Pulmonary Rehabilitation, Respiratory Specialty, Stroke Recovery, and Wound Care and Skin Management. Homeward Bound graduates in attendance renewed friendships with each other as well as with staff members, and received diplomas and medals.

Mr. John Schmidt of Senior Servants, Inc. was the guest speaker for the graduation. Schmidt shared his story with the group which began while he was serving as the City of Greenville, Ohio’s Safety-Service Director. During that time, he had the opportunity to speak with many senior citizens within the community who needed assistance with minor home repair and maintenance, lawn care, snow removal, and other tasks, but were either unable to find anyone interested in doing the work, or were unable to afford to have the work done. For many of these senior citizens, family members resided out-of-state and were unable to assist them. After retiring, the needs of the seniors were still weighing heavily on his heart. It was apparent to him that a Christian, faith-based ministry was needed to assist seniors, age 65 or older, at little or no cost to them. This would allow the seniors within the community to feel more confident in trying to maintain their independence and remain in their homes. After much prayerful consideration, the Senior Servant ministry was initiated and received its first request for assistance. Since that time, Senior Servants, Inc. has established its own financial account and hundreds of volunteer man-hours have been given to the seniors within the Greenville and Darke County, Ohio, area. The number of seniors contacting Senior Servants for assistance has continued to increase, as has the number of volunteers contributing to the organization.
