Helping You Age Well, Your Way!
Life can be complicated. Aging in place is what we want to educate consumers on. When changes occur due to health, family dynamics, finances, etc., help is needed to make good decisions. Whether you need to find a service or learn about your options by talking with a professional, you’ve come to the right place.
The AgeSmart Community Resources works to help older adults remain independent in their homes and communities. Through planning, funding, responding to community needs and providing answers on aging, AgeSmart Community Resources helps people AGE WELL THEIR WAY.

Help a Senior Stay in Their Home
10,000 people are turning 65 years old every day – these numbers are unprecedented in U.S. history. 9 out of 10 of these people want to live at home – that translates to 110,000 people in the Metro East who want to age in the comfort of their own homes. At AgeSmart Community Resources, we help them do just that by providing 20 different services designed to help people stay healthy and independent.
It costs just pennies on the dollar to help people stay at home versus living in a restrictive environment like a nursing home. For example, a home-delivered meal not only provides nutrition but allows daily interaction for a home-bound person. This simple meal can be the one thing keeping them healthy and in their own home.
You can help provide that meal for one senior for just $25 per week, $100 a month or $1,200 for a full year. Think about it – you can keep someone happy and comfortable in their own home for about the same cost as a cup of coffee at your local café.

Remember don’t just grow old…age smart!
