By donating to Council on Aging, you help preserve and enhance services that help local seniors remain in their homes and avoid unnecessary placement in nursing facilities.
Meals on Wheels, homemaking, transportation to medical appointments, and home accessibility upgrades (bathroom grab bars, for example) are among the services provided, depending on each person's needs.
Without these services, many seniors of modest means, especially those on their own, are forced to leave their homes and enter nursing facilities, where most soon run out of money and go onto Medicaid. This is heartbreaking for them and expensive for taxpayers.
Home care services are provided through the Elderly Services Program which is administered by Council on Aging for eligible, disabled older adults in Butler, Clinton, Hamilton and Warren counties.
The Elderly Services Program is supported by local taxpayers in each county and by donations that provide education to the public about the program and its importance, including levy campaigns. The program would not exist without this public investment and the donations that support it.
For the frail elderly of modest means, the Elderly Services Program is the only option for in-home care. For their families, it is a life-saver that makes it possible to keep mom and dad at home. Annually, the Elderly Services Program helps nearly 13,000 local seniors live with independence and dignity.
