About the Office of Aging

Our programs meet many types of needs and range from basic help to the provision of skilled care. All services are intended to keep older persons at home, where they most often want to remain.

Referrals
Older adults and their families might first encounter the agency through the Information and Referral (I&R) unit. I&R staff identify needs and locate available resources, explain agency services, and answer questions about aging related issues and policies. The I&R unit also performs the intake function for all Office of Aging programs.

When contacting the office on behalf of an older adult, please consider including the name and date of birth of the person(s) needing services. This is optional, and the information will remain confidential.  It will help intake staff to more quickly identify the most appropriate response to your request.

Office of Aging Mission
Our goal is to provide needed assistance to older persons and their families in the most appropriate and least restrictive manner, enabling them to maintain dignity and independence. Individuals may be asked to share in the cost of services, depending upon their financial resources.
