Mission Statement

To advocate for, educate and assist the senior and disabled populations of Schuyler County to live in the most independent and integrated setting through community collaboration providing for well-being/health, security, dignity, autonomy and choice through innovative home and community-based services.

Description

The Schuyler County Office for the Aging was established as a result of the Older Americans Act of 1965 with the core function being provision of information / referrals and services for county residents age 60 and over, as well as their caregivers.

With the addition of NY Connects, individuals of any age with a disability are served as well. A variety of programs are offered through nutrition services, in-home services, benefits assistance and general services. Although the office assists anyone over the age of 60, there is an emphasis on meeting the needs of our low income minority elderly population as well as those with disabilities.
