The Retirement Program of the Arc Knox County addresses the changing needs of our aging clients. Due to their various disabilities, these individuals are unable to use community senior citizen services without staff support. Our staff takes into account the participants' abilities, interest, and limitations. Staff assist our seniors in utilizing existing services for seniors whenever possible.
This program offers a variety of community activities including bowling, arthritis exercise classes at a local senior center, walking groups, going to plays, taking in a movie, shopping and eating out for lunch. The program also offers activities located in their own space at the Beta III residential home. Activities might include memory games, art therapy, yard games, simple meal preparation and strength building.
