The XARSC Transportation The Xenia Adult Recreation and Services Center has had a transportation program since 1982. The purpose of the program is to provide transportation to the aging and disabled in Greene County and to assist individuals so they may live independently in their own homes for as long as possible.

The Xenia Adult Recreation and Services Center has 17 wheel chair equipped vans. The vans vary in size, there are small vans that seat only a few people and there are large vans that seat up to 16 individuals. Some of the vans are several years old and a couple are only one or two years old!

Individuals age 50 and above may request local transportation (Xenia to Xenia) with a $4.00 donation each way. Out of town transportation is for MEDICAL APPOINTMENTS ONLY and for  individuals age 60 and above who qualify for out of town funding. Other individuals may be referred through contracts. Several weeks notice is needed for Medical out of town transportation due to high demand for the service.

One of the goals of the Xenia Adult Recreation and Services Center Homemaker Program is to help the aging remain in their own homes for as long as possible. Our Homemaker Program helps support this goal through an informal, friendly program that assists the aging with light housekeeping, including:

  • Light Cleaning
  • Errands
  • Meal Preparation
  • ​Laundry
  • ​Other Miscellanious Tasks

​Services are tailored to meet the needs of the individual. The Services can be provided on a regular basis or for a specific instance or timeframe, e.g., recovering from surgery. ​Homemakers in the program are expected to be courteous and kind to their clients. They are trained to work effectively, communicate patiently and recognize their special needs and support them with the care and respect they deserve. ​The Homemaker Coordinator visits every potential homemaker client at their home to review a homemaker plan. ​Aside from client satisfaction surveys, the Coordinator also completes follow up in-home visits to evaluate the Homemakers performance/behavior and the clients satisfaction. ​For more information on this program, call XARSC Homemaker Coordinator Debbie Rowland.


      The XARSC Telephone Reassurance Program, AKA: "TELASSURANCE", is a unique program that the

center has offered for over 30 years. The purpose of the program is to

link volunteer "phone friends" up with a

senior who would benefit from someone checking up on

them thru a phone call during the week.

Volunteers and clients are matched up and the volunteer

will contact the client to see how often they would like

to be called. The normal amount of calls are 3-5 times a week. The Supportive Services Department manages this program.

​If you enjoy talking on the phone, cheering others up, have a positive, uplifting attitude, we need you as a volunteer!

If you are in need of being called as a recipient of the

program, call & sign up! Call 376-4353 and ask for Angie
