Serving Older Adults

Couple smilingIn the next decade, over 71 million Americans will be 65 years of age and older. With the increasing numbers of older persons and persons with lifelong disabilities living longer, we will see a broader demand for home and community-based services. These services will help manage activities of daily living that may be limited as a result of acute or chronic conditions, and will keep people integrated in their communities.  

Easter Seals programs such as adult day services, in-home support and services, community mobility options, wellness programs and support for family caregivers help people live as independently as possible for as long as possible. The Easter Seals family of services is ever expanding to meet the needs and help promote wellness, independence and connectivity among the growing number of older Americans.

Loving Conversations: Having the right information to make difficult decisions
Easter Seals developed Loving Conversations -- a free booklet that offers guidance for families determining what’s best for their aging parents. The resource provides advice on healthcare, living arrangements, financial management, legal issues, and community support groups and organizations. Most important, Loving Conversations walks families through the necessary, tough discussions and overall decision process.
