People Inc. Senior Services provide many benefits for older adults, as well as their caregivers. Two of the programs that may be beneficial for families are People Inc.'s Senior Companion and Senior Outreach Programs:
The People Inc. Senior Companion Program assists older adults, 55 and up living in Erie County, who need assistance with daily living tasks. Companion volunteers assist participating seniors with grocery shopping, going for walks, light cooking and housekeeping, while providing a break for caregivers. The program is in need of additional volunteers, who are also age 55 or over, live in Erie County and meet income guidelines. Volunteers receive training and earn a stipend, mileage and meal reimbursement. They also enjoy rewarding experiences, while those who receive services can remain independent in their familiar surroundings. To learn more, call 716-768-2381.
Through the People Inc. Senior Outreach Program, case management services are provided to older adults 60 years or older who live at home to provide the necessary support to age in place. The program is available to seniors who live in Kenmore, Grand Island, North Buffalo, Tonawanda (city and town) and West Buffalo. Older adults enrolled will gain access to appropriate services, including: Adult day care, housekeeping, caregiver resources, food stamps, health insurance/Medicaid and home care services. Spanish-speaking staff is available. For more information, call 716-768-2357.
People Inc. values the community's growing senior population. Through affordable apartments, outreach, healthcare and a day program that helps individuals with memory loss, the agency is committed to encouraging older adults to get the most out of life, overcome challenges and achieve independence.
