OFA Celebrates National Caregivers Month

November is National Caregivers Month. Every day, caregivers in our community make it possible for aging and disabled family members to remain at home. Office for the Aging is here to assist. We offer a supportive service for those caring for an aging family member or friend, or for those over 60. OFA is committed to helping seniors achieve the highest level of independence. Our goal is to help people stay in their own home for as long as possible, safely as possible.

Caregiver support services can assist in the following areas:

Housekeeping services

Personal care

Shopping assistance

Lifeline

RUOK (daily phone call)

Home adaptation assistance

Meals on Wheels

Senior Day Program

Friendly volunteer

Dietary consultations

Legal services for the elderly

If you need guidance or information, on any of the above programs please don’t hesitate to call Jennifer Ellman at 753-4781, 363-4781 or 661-7781.
