May is Older Americans Month. The theme this year is “Age My Way.” Older adults have built resilience and strength over their lives through successes, failures, joys, and difficulties. Their stories and contributions help to support and inspire others. We will celebrate the strength of older adults with special emphasis on ways older adults can remain in, and be involved with, their communities. During May we will be sharing stories of ALSM residents and program participants.

Meet Fay Stevanus, an ALSM at Home program participant.

For the past three years, Fay, a widowed veteran, has received the services of ALSM at Home. The staff team members visit him twice a week, staying three hours each visit. “I highly recommend them. Everything they do is terrific,” said Fay. “I had another group before ALSM at Home and I asked them to stop visiting. It was always someone new coming to my home. With ALSM, I have Tina and Rita who visit me each week. They know exactly what needs done and they get right to it!” The team helps Fay maintain his independence in his home. “I cannot keep my house going without them. They clean, do laundry, fix me a bite to eat, among other things,” he shared. “I look forward to their visits. They are like family to me, like daughters.”

“I have bad knees and hips and elbows from years spent on my favorite pastime,” said Fay. He was Altoona’s beloved “Snow Cone Man” for more than thirty years. Prior to retiring from PPG, he spent four hours nightly in the summer delivering smiles to as many children as possible. In retirement he spent nine hours a day in his Jeep driving three routes, providing joy and delicious frozen treats. “I enjoyed it and continued until it took its toll on my body. Crushing ice is hard on your shoulders, back and legs. I have always believed in supporting the youth in my community, either as a youth counselor or the Snow Cone Man.”
