Community Services for Seniors
Many community organizations offer services that assist seniors with personal activities. Most offer a variety of services and programs, but the variety may differ between communities. Local Office for the Aging departments keep a comprehensive list of senior community organizations, and the services they offer.
Senior Centers: offer a wide scope of services including nutrition, recreation, health education, and exercise.
Transportation: available in many communities and may include taxi cab services, public bus services, wheel-chair accessible vans.
