Adult Services

Disabled Adults and Seniors

Older adults and those with disabilities deserve the freedom to live safely in the comfort of their own home.

We believe in your right to dignity, to self-determination, and to live with as much independence as possible.

If you or a loved one is an older or dependent adult, we want to partner with you. Alongside with other agencies in the community, we will create a plan that is tailor-made to your unique needs.

We are part of a countywide multidisciplinary team of legal and health advocates to provide community education and investigate reports of elder and dependent adult abuse. Learn more by watching this video.
