Senior Services Program


You’re not alone…

Isolation is a big problem for seniors. Without needed support and access to services and recreation, they may lose their ability to live independent and fulfilling lives.

Neighborhood House’s Senior Services Program is committed to keeping seniors connected—to needed assistance and to the community. We promote active and healthy lives for seniors and assist them in living independently in their homes for as long as possible. We offer services to enhance life socially, physically, and intellectually, with an emphasis on promoting choice and dignity for elders.

Services for seniors include:

Care Management helps at-risk seniors access necessary services that enable them to remain independent.

Senior Center offers a wide range of educational, recreational, social, and health improvement activities.

Information and Assistance assists with accessing services including medical transportation, housing information, medical/dental information, caregiver listings, care management referrals, senior law project and health insurance benefits.

Senior Transportation provides shuttle service, shopping and recreational trips, medical and other transport services to seniors and adults with disabilities.

Monthly Foot Care Clinic provided by RN's, every second Wednesday.

Meet a Neighbor

Jennifer and EmmaGabriella is a delightful, gregarious 89-year-old, living on a fixed income. Like many in her generation, she was reluctant to take food assistance because she thought others needed it more. When our Senior Food Box Program opened just down the hall from our Senior Center, where she comes frequently to meet friends, she was persuaded to participate. Our Senior Food Box Program provides Gabriella with foods that meet her nutritional needs, including low-sodium and vitamin-enriched foods, as well as higher-cost staple products such as flour and oil. Gabriella has saved more than $30 a month utilizing the Food Box Program, which she uses to purchase fresh fruits and vegetables. Her resourcefulness in conjunction with the program allows her to live more comfortably and meet her nutritional needs.
