Our staff of volunteers and professionals work closely with seniors, their families, and caregivers, and help identify and locate the services they need. We serve people who typically are 60 years of age and older in a five county area in Florida encompassing Hillsborough, Polk, Manatee, Highlands and Hardee Counties. Our staff will explain your options and guide you through the maze of programs and services available to you. You will be able to plan for the future and make informed decisions for yourself or someone you care for.
Some of the services we offer include:
Health care information
Medicare/Medicaid information
In-home care information

All of our programs and assistance are available at no cost to you. We receive funding from state and federal grants administered through the Florida Department of Elder Affairs.
