Senior Services

The Senior Services provides seniors with options and resources to help them remain in their community as well as avoid falls, hospitalizations and nursing home placement.

Who We Serve

The Senior Services Program is based on income. The elder participant must be over 65 years of age, receive personal care services, and be house-bound. The program serves Barrington, Bristol, Warren, East Providence, Pawtucket and Central Falls.

We also offer long-term care Medicaid application assistance and case management services to those living in the community or in assisted living who are on Rhode Island Community Medicaid or are insured by Neighborhood Health Plan of Rhode Island.

Additionally, we provide short-term case management to elders who have been referred to us from the Division of Elderly Affairs Protective Services Unit. Our goal is to assist with the immediate crisis and help the client access services in the community including the array of free services listed below.
