Aging deteriorates and isolates. It strips away our abilities and can leave even the most hearty among us alone, vulnerable and insecure. Without the right support, it can erode our independence, fade our sense of purpose and strip away hope.
To assist the vulnerable elderly in our community with support and to promote independent living, Seniors First provides the following critical programs and services:
1 in 6 seniors struggles with hunger and may not know where their next meal will come from. Seniors First offers the following options to help older adults (60+) get the nutrition they need.
