Senior Services Plus is proud to announce a new partnership as of the beginning of October 2016 with RPI Therapy Services, a local provider of rehabilitation services. In addition to the state-of-the-art equipment, fitness classes, personal training, and nutrition consulting we currently offer, RPI now brings Physical, Occupational and Speech Therapy to our on-site services. RPI is a local provider of rehabilitation services that specializes in working with older adults and will now have an office at Senior Services Plus where clients can now receive outpatient therapy while you are here. RPI will bill Medicare and most other insurances for these services, and a physician’s order is required.

“We are excited to have RPI join our team,” says SSP Wellness Coordinator, Lucas Hale. “Their values mirror SSP’s very closely by wanting to provide affordable wellness to older adults so it’s a great fit. We also get to provide more services to our clients and become more of a ‘one-stop-shop’ that we want to be by them joining us.”

We believe that everyone should have access to an affordable health and wellness program, and with the addition of outpatient therapy services, we will now have another option to meet your healthcare needs.

For more information about RPI, contact Shonna Fortschneider, PT and RPI Rehab Manager, at 618-980-4676, or stop by the Wellness Center to meet the new therapy team! You can also go online to their website at



The Alton Chapter of Women Empowering Women (WEW) is moving their monthly meetings to the first Wednesday of each month from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

The goal of the group is to offer support and practical information that empowers, encourages, and inspires professional women. Laura Mattson organizer of WEW said she felt the move to SSP reflected the members commitment to helping other women by supporting organizations such as SSP that provide valuable assistance and services to women in the region.

At each lunch session, attendees will have the opportunity to network, swap business and professional leads and needs, while also expanding their professional and personal acumen through presentations being provided by area and regional women with subject expertise to share. Membership is free and open to all business women in the Riverbend area.

There is no cost to attend the meeting. Lunch will be available for you to purchase at the SSP Grill.







Pay Now Illinois is a coalition of 64 human and social service agencies serving Illinois' most vulnerable populations. The members of the coalition provide a broad range of essential services including healthcare, housing for the homeless, sexual abuse counseling, and programs for at-risk youth. As a group, we are seeking payment of more than $100 million from the state for more than 300 days of work performed under signed contracts. 

As of May 4, 2016, the coalition is suing the Governor and six department heads, asking the Court to enforce our contracts with the State so we are paid immediately and in full. We have upheld our end of a legal agreement; the State must uphold theirs.

Our actions are unprecedented because the situation is dire. The lack of funds is undermining our ability to continue to serve people in need, and threatening the viability of some agencies. For more information, please visit
