Senior Outreach & Caregiver Services
“I’m not ready to give up my independence. It’s nice to know that I can get guidance and support for those things that are getting more challenging to handle on my own, and that I don’t have to rely solely on family and friends.”
Connecting you to resources that help seniors remain independent.
Seniors remain healthy, safe, and independent with the aid of our experienced, helpful staff. Older adults and their families are able to access the most appropriate and affordable combination of services that help them stay in the community for as long as possible with our assistance.
What is Senior Outreach & Caregiver Services?
Friends, spouses, and other family members who help an older adult remain at home find support through Senior Outreach & Caregiver Services. Caregivers are not only connected with needed services and resources for their loved one, but also given much needed support. You will work with our experienced, licensed social workers to identify the best combination of affordable community resources to meet your specific needs.
