Program Descriptions


This program provides supportive services in the community to adults 60 years of age or older, their family caregivers, grandparents caring for grandchildren, and residents of long-term care facilities. Services include information and assistance, legal assistance, transportation, respite in-home support, senior center activities, elder abuse prevention, and the Long Term Care Ombudsman. Older Americans Act Titles III and VII fund these services to enable individuals to access the support necessary for them to remain independent in their communities, continue in their caregiving role, and/or receive long-term care services appropriate to their needs.
