Older Adult Services

Helping Seniors to Thrive

We realized a long time ago that older members of our community are an invaluable resource in building a better tomorrow. Our senior adult services make sure our clients continue to feel included in society, whether they are able to join us for group programs or require a more personal touch with visits to their homes.
