Notes for Finding Services for Older Adults

Many services are available online, some paid and some free. To find services for yourself you can google “(type of service) for seniors in (location)”.

Another great resource for finding programs and services in your area are public libraries! Libraries offer many events and programs online, and often can provide lists to other services available in the area.

During COVID-19 we have noticed that many companies and agencies are providing online services for people in all different locations. It may be useful to broaden your search location if you are looking for a service that is completely online accessible and that you don’t need to go into a physical location/building for.
