The Social Services staff consists of case managers and a Community Information and Referral Specialist, who are available Monday through Friday, to guide you through the maze of services available for seniors. These professionals can explain eligibility requirements, and refer you to the agency or service that can best help you with your particular inquiry or request. They are also available to seniors and their families to discuss problems, provide support, assist in filling out forms, or just listen to concerns. For those elders who are housebound, our case managers will visit their homes to assess their needs and to provide coordination of services.
Community Information Specialist assists in determining eligibility and accessibility for services, programs, and benefits available. The Specialist also advocates for the rights of elders and adults with disabilities.
During these uncertain times, the Social Services Department is here to serve you.
Please contact a department staff member with any questions or to schedule an appointment.
