If you’re a senior, have a senior relative or are a caregiver to a senior…
We’re here to help you.
Finding the answers to questions on aging can be a daunting task. There is so much information available in so many places that it becomes hard to make sense of it all. That’s where we come in. We help you find what you need at no cost to you.
We are the Senior Connection Center, a not-for-profit, 501(c)3 corporation dedicated to helping people age at home with dignity for over 30 years. Our staff of volunteers and professionals work closely with seniors, their families, and caregivers, and help identify and locate the services they need.
How We Help Seniors
We serve people who typically are 60 years of age and older in a five county area in Florida encompassing Hillsborough, Polk, Manatee, Highlands and Hardee Counties. Our staff will explain your options and guide you through the maze of programs and services available to you. You will be able to plan for the future and make informed decisions for yourself or someone you care for.
Some of the services we offer include:
- Health care information
- Medicare/Medicaid information
- In-home care information
- Helping to locate providers
- Working with the legislature on senior issues
- Caregiver assistance programs
- Acting as your advocate with government programs
- Educational and outreach programs
All of our programs and assistance are available at no cost to you. We receive funding from state and federal grants administered through the Florida Department of Elder Affairs. The rest of our expenses are met through the donations of generous and caring individuals and corporations. We urge you to support those companies that help us with our mission.
As the demand for our service increases, so does the need for funds to administer the programs. Your generous donation will assure the continuing support of those in need.
