INFORMATION and ASSISTANCE
1.800.211.2116

Senior Information & Assistance is a free service that is the main access point for a wide range of public and private resources that are available to persons aged 60 and over, adults with disabilities, and their families. Information and assistance can be provided on the phone, in person, by email, or regular mail. In addition to a computer database Senior I&A maintains a library of resources that can be mailed out to clients and caregivers upon their request.

All communication is handled in a confidential manner. Functions of Information & Assistance include:
• information giving
• service referrals
• advocacy
• assistance
• caregiver services
• program outreach

Examples of these resources include:
• Caregiving resources
• Support groups
• Home and health care options
• Medical and dental referrals
• Nutrition programs
• Housing options
• Senior centers and activities
• Transportation
• Adult/Child Protective Services
• Other services depending on need and request

NOTE: The service of Senior Information and Assistance is available at no cost to the public. However, many of the community resources we link people with do have specific age, income, asset or other eligibility criteria. Some are available at no cost; others have set fees or charge according to a person’s ability to pay. Contact the Senior Info Line at 1-800-211-2116 for more information on program eligibility and/or cost.
