Older adults face many challenges, but for most maintaining independence is a top priority. CSSW has designed community-based programs for the 60+ population to negotiate the challenges of caregiving or living alone, maintaining a home, and finding critical community resources Through professional staff, trained volunteers and collaborations with community parishes, our services include respite and adult day activities, the installation of home safety devices, minor chores and repairs, and a trusted advocate to provide individualized assistance to find whatever help is needed.
For more than 25 years, the CSSW Senior Resource Directory has been the “go to” place for a comprehensive list and phone numbers of the services seniors need.
