Services we provide or fund include: assessment and care management; home-delivered meals; care at home; senior community centers, including congregate meals; home modifications and repairs; legal assistance; benefit and insurance counseling; caregiver resources; respite care; transportation; senior companions; RSVP; employment programs; and protective services.
