The Senior Resources Department, which continues to be the place to start for senior services in the Town, is the community resource for senior services. Our caseworkers and staff are available to provide information, assistance and referral to a variety of programs and services ranging from in-home services to transportation options. When helping seniors or their caregivers the assistance can be brief information and assistance or more extensive, providing case management to seniors and their caregivers. This individual assistance is provided in a confidential manner, whether it is providing counseling to an overwhelmed caregiver or providing assistance with health care and benefit programs or the high cost and challenges of home maintenance. Our caseworkers work directly with seniors and try our hardest to support residents with the services and assistance necessary to remain living independently in their own homes as valued community residents.
Another vital component in the continuum of senior services in the Town are the seven senior clubs, located throughout the Town. Towns funding insures that the clubs continue to be the hub of recreational, wellness and socialization opportunities for seniors throughout the Town. Each club is unique, tailoring the recreational events around the desires of their membership. More information about the clubs and activities can be found at the link to senior clubs on our website or contact us at 459-5051.
Colonie Senior Service Centers, Inc. (CSSC) is the third component of senior services. CSSC is a non-profit senior service Center providing senior transportation, congregate meals, health and wellness activities, adult day services, Umbrella of Colonie home maintenance program and senior housing. The Town of Colonie provides funding support annually to CSSC for senior transportation, Umbrella of Colonie scholarships, congregate meals and Bright Horizons Adult Day Service scholarships. Senior Resources and CSSC work seamlessly to provide a full range of programs and services to meet the needs of our senior community. For more information on the programs provided by CSSC please visit their website at www.colonieseniors.org
There are many valuable services and programs delivered in a variety of ways to the Town's older residents and caregivers. It is important that folks know how to access assistance whether it is for them or for a loved one. Assistance is a phone call away; please contact the Senior Resources Department at 459-5051 for more information or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org .
