Our office provides information and/or assistance about available county, state, and federal services to any caller or visitor. To be eligible for a majority of the programs, individuals must be 60 years of age and older. Individuals and/or their family members or friends are encouraged to call about any questions they may have.
The primary goal of our information and referral program is to keep elderly citizens in their own homes for as long as it is feasible. We will be glad to send informational packets to anyone who is trying to discern what best fits them or their loved ones.
Our office does staff one Certified Information and Referral Specialist for Aging (CIRS-A), and all of our staff is able to answer a myriad of questions. Referrals can be made to Medicaid program as well as state and local programs. We will also be happy to give you your options for services such as medical alert systems, medication dispensing systems, mobility equipment (lift chairs, bath benches, etc.), food programs, etc.
Feel free to contact us by email or by phone at (316) 775-0500.
