     The Office for the Aging can help you understand and apply for the many benefit programs available to the elderly. Many of these programs have complex and confusing requirements.  Our staff can assess an applicant's needs and offer information about available options.

     We can help you with the following applications and programs:  


·       Medicaid

·       Food Stamps

·       Home Energy Assistance Program (HEAP)

·        School Tax Relief - STAR program

·       Medicare Prescription Drug program

·       Supplemental Health Insurance

     The Office for the Aging also contracts with the Association of Senior Citizens. The Association provides trained staff at each Adult Center to assist elderly with these programs. Click here for a listing of the County's adult centers.
