SERVICES FOR OLDER ADULTS

Payee Services provides individualized financial management to those who are unable to manage their own financial affairs due to a disability or for those who just need help in effectively handling their fiscal matters.

Eligible, low income, older adult volunteers called Senior Companions, help to reduce isolation by offering peer companionship and assistance to elderly and disabled clients in Franklin, Licking, Fairfield, and Delaware Counties. Senior Companions receive a small stipend for their service.

The Friendly Visiting Program is a community-based program that utilizes adults (minors must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian) to provide support and one-on-one assistance to isolated Central Ohio seniors (60+ yrs.) and disabled adults in need of companionship to combat the negative effects of social isolation. Friendly Visiting volunteers are matched with a nearby, isolated and lonely individual in an effort to help seniors living alone, to remain independent in their own home.

Licensed social workers provide ongoing in-home needs assessment, care planning and consultation to help vulnerable seniors maintain their independence through Senior Supportive Services. Assistance is provided for financial management, medical appointments, insurance, transportation, and housing needs, and by linkage to other community services.

With the help of Money Management, licensed social workers assist those who are having difficulty managing their daily finances. The program accommodates varying levels of need from basic budgeting and bill payment to more advanced maintenance of income requiring a representative payee, providing them with the highest possible level of independence.

Transportation to Medical Appointments is available to qualifying seniors and veterans in Licking County for non-emergency medical appointments throughout Ohio.
