Outreach is a program that assists seniors who are in need of services and benefits, advises as to what resources are available and helps clients access them as appropriate, recognizes the uniqueness of each individual and their needs, an is holistic in its approach to senior-centered solutions.
Outreach works with all seniors seeking assistance. Although we prioritize isolated seniors, our outreach is in no way limited to any one demographic within the 55+ range. Anyone over the age of 55 can contact our social worker and expect assistance with whatever challenges have arrived on your doorstep.
