Impact and Programs
In 2022, Senior Community Services (SCS) served 16,319 older adults and informal (family & Friends) caregivers. SCS supported independence for older adults at-risk of long-term nursing home use, and/or spending down into Medical Assistance, through non-medical services including indoor and outdoor chores, home maintenance, homemaking, and care coordination. SCS empowered at-risk families and informal caregivers (i.e., friends and/or neighbors) through coaching, consultation, education, support groups, family meetings, memory cafes for those with dementia, and CareNextion.org, a free online and mobile app tool to organize care of a loved one. SCS connected community through Senior Centers, volunteers, resource assistance, and technology support and training.
We are in the last year of our current three-year strategic plan. SCS' programmatic goals include, investing big in our people and culture, accelerating our impact, advancing our mission through financial health, standing out through thought leadership and collaboration, catalyzing connections, and igniting awareness.
