Services for Older Adults

Abundant Aging

Support groups, respite care, counseling and classes help caregivers maintain a healthy balanced lifestyle while providing quality care for their loved ones.

Older adults living at home are visited weekly by trained volunteers who offer friendship, transportation and support.

Foster Grandparents

Older adult volunteers provide one-on-one support, friendship and mentorship to at-risk and children and teens.
