Support Services

Many services are available to support older adults’ health and independence in their homes and communities, including help with household chores, personal care, home health services, and home repairs. Supports can also connect people and groups at local senior centers and through other community activities. Visit the Transportation and Health sections for additional information about staying mobile and healthy in the home and community.

The Older Americans Act Supportive Services and Senior Centers Program funds an array of these support services. To find services in your community, enter your ZIP code or city and state in the search bar at the top of this page or speak with an information specialist at the Eldercare Locator at 1-800-677-1116.
