SENIOR SERVICES

 

Information and Referral

Human Services recognizes the difficulty seniors have in securing needed services to remain independent and in their own homes. That is why we provide a knowledgeable social work professional who will work with you to identify your needs and direct you to the resources available.
 

Advocate for Seniors

Human Services understands that gaps in senior services exists and are committed to help identify those gaps and advocate for change.
 

Outreach

Human Services reaches out to homebound seniors and provides home visits as needed to assist seniors with problem solving. Home based counseling and mental health assessments are also provided when requested.
 

Consultation

Human Services staff provides consultation to family members, groups and organizations regarding senior citizen issues.
