Medicare Counseling

Our trained Medicare volunteer counselors offer free, unbiased and confidential assistance with Medicare insurance choices, fraud and help for those turning 65 as they signup for Medicare. 

In-Home Care Services

Most older adults want to continue living in their own homes rather than move in with a relative or relocate to a senior living community. Learn more about the programs and in-home services for seniors in Central Oregon that make it possible for older individuals to live with dignity, well-being, and independence.

Caring Connections

Our Caring Connections program matches volunteers with seniors who would appreciate a weekly phone call and camaraderie. The special relationship that can develop between a client and a volunteer enables the client to have greater social interaction to maintain healthy, independent living. Our volunteers are local to Central Oregon, are trained and background checked.
