The Human Services Department provides information and assistance in identifying and accessing resources for older adults (60 years of age and older) and their caregivers. Many times, the Human Services Department is called upon to help seniors and their families when there is a change in health, finances or living arrangements. These changes make it necessary to obtain supportive services in the home or to evaluate alternate living options.
Other areas of assistance include transportation, nutrition programs, and support groups. The department strives to increase awareness of programs and services available to meet the needs of seniors. Depending on the information requested, a listing of resources, brochures, or other materials can be mailed. There is no charge for assistance, although donations can be made to support our Lifeline Program or our Food Bank. For information or to set up an appointment, contact Amy Washabaugh.
