Eldercare Locator offers options for seniors

If you’re wondering how you might find someone to help with household chores or need professional advice about health care options or managing finances for retirement, you may want to call the Eldercare Locator at (800) 677-1116.

This free service is the first step to helping older adults find resources such as home repair, transportation, nutritional meals and employment services.

Such resources can help older people live independently in their homes and communities for as long as possible.

The Eldercare Locator also offers free brochures for older adults and family caregivers on topics to discuss with aging parents, staying in touch during crisis situations, home energy tips to save money and live safely and housing and transportation options.

The Eldercare Locator is a public service of the U.S. Administration on Aging and is administered by the National Association of Area Agencies on Aging.
