Senior Connection Center, Inc. Overview
As our name implies, Senior Connection Center connects seniors, disabled adults and their caregivers to the services they need to maintain their independence and dignity. Most people reach us through our Elder Helpline, 1-800-96-ELDER, where we listen to callers and refer them to the most appropriate and affordable services; SHINE, which provides Medicare recipients with free, unbiased counseling to guide them through the maze of Medicare, supplemental insurance options, and help in applying for programs to lower their out-of-pocket medical costs; Health & Wellness classes, including Chronic Disease Self-Management, Tai Chi and Fall Prevention; and Elder Abuse Prevention training for business professionals and seniors. We also fund services for frail seniors including home-delivered meals, personal care and homemaker services, and rides to doctor visits. Our services improve the quality of life of those we serve, allow them to age in place and avoid unnecessary or premature nursing home placement.
