So often people forget the support the Friendship Centers provide in so many different ways. The staff and facilities are an amazing resource to the aging community.
One special aspect providing support is in social services. Help is just a phone call away to the Elder Helpline, together with staff on site at four different locations in the area.
Helping older adults live independently in their own homes for as long as possible is the focus of Senior Friendship Centers' Social Services and Case Management. Case managers match service options available through programs funded at the State and Federal levels to help clients receive the care they need.
Elder Helpline: Toll Free 866.413.5337
The Elder Helpline toll free number is your starting point to access services. A preliminary needs assessment will determine which programs you qualify for, and where you can access them. From this needs assessment, you will be referred to services, or, in some cases, placed on a waiting list for services.
