Senior Community Services
There are many private, religious and government organizations in most towns that provide supportive services for seniors. Many of these services center around helping people stay in their homes and avoid having to go to live in a facility or perhaps move in with family members. Because of the emphasis on helping people remain independent, many community aging/senior programs could be viewed as long-term care programs. In fact it’s probably just a matter of semantics; long-term care and community aging services are just two sides of the same coin. Other community services may provide socialization or training opportunities. Community aging programs might include:
- Meals served in community centers or delivered to the home
- Community Senior Center activities and training
- Transportation and shopping services for people who can’t drive or leave their homes
- Home repairs, snow shoveling, telephone support, caregiver support, care management, legal services, energy and weatherization services, housing subsidies, home health care, counseling and much more
- Adult day care
- Protection from abuse
- Help with health insurance and government entitlement programs
Private support groups might be the Red Cross, women’s auxiliaries or foundations. Many religious communities support activities for their elderly members as well as nonmembers. Both private and religious groups often provide services for free to people with little income and few assets.
Senior centers are often the focal point for all aging services in a community. Experts or contact people are housed in senior centers and can provide many services in the center itself or refer out to other organizations that can help. The community served meals or congregate meals in senior centers are a means for attracting older people into the centers. Seniors can then be exposed to the many services that are available.
