The mission of Cincinnati Area Senior Services is to promote the independence and preserve the dignity of older adults.
Cincinnati Area Senior Services (CASS) is a non-profit that provides support to diverse groups of seniors with unique needs all over Hamilton County. That support includes financial management to protect seniors from scams, theft and fraud, a Meals-On-Wheels program that provides nutritious meals to home bound seniors and a Guardianship Assistance Program for seniors in nursing homes who have no family to oversee their care. Additionally, CASS serves free breakfast and lunch at their senior center in O-T-R and to multiple senior community meal sites. CASS provides service coordinators to help seniors understand housing and medical policies, fill out applications for services, and bring in speakers for educational and health topics. Other services include door to door transportation services to help seniors get to medical appointments, the grocery store, and community senior centers. CASS has a big impact on the seniors in the Cincinnati community.
