Description of Service
Our Older Adult and Senior Services program is designed to assist individuals in maintaining their independence for as long as they desire. All of our core services are available to seniors, depending on need, and we provide strong advocacy aimed at dispelling the many myths of aging which build barriers between older individuals and the community.
The Senior Services program works collaboratively with many other organizations to ensure that seniors receive all the services and benefits available to them in their communities. These organizations include the Area Agency on Aging, Social Services, Social Security, the Division of Vocational Rehabilitation, Retired Senior Volunteer Program, senior centers, home health care agencies, and others.
