Aging Services

Our agency serves as the link between seniors and the agencies that serve them. Most programs and services are offered on a contribution basis. No service is denied because of inability or unwillingness to contribute. Some programs operate on a "cost share" basis, where the client pays a portion of the cost according to his/her income.

Funding for these programs is provided by Wayne County, the New York State Office for the Aging, the Federal Older Americans Act, and private contributions.
