A program for senior citizens to connect them with resources in the community

Educate Seniors on Community Resources

Home Visitor staff are licensed Social Workers who research and aid senior citizens in finding community resources that fit their needs.

Assess Overall Well-Being

We assess seniors for strengths, risk factors and safety concerns.

Strengthen Support Network

We identify positive relationships in the senior’s life that can be used to strengthen their support network. Additionally, we may refer to home health care agencies and other services in the community.

Supportive Counseling

We provide supportive counseling including grief, loss and mental health concerns.

Assist with Paperwork and Practical Needs

We help with paperwork relating to housing needs, financial assistance, health insurance, Health Care Directives and more. We accompany, advocate or facilitate to help seniors to access resources.

Caregiver Support

We explore supportive options for the person who is caring for a senior citizen.

Follow-up Visits

After our initial visit, we may follow-up as often as needed to help the person achieve their goals.

Group Education

Home Visitor Program staff educate groups in the community on the Home Visitor Program and on issues of aging.
