Senior Services Resource Specialists make personal contact with older persons to help them learn about available services and to assist them in using these services.


An initial home or office visit is made by a Senior Services Resource Specialist to those interested in finding out more about Council on Aging services.  This visit is called an assessment.  The assessment involves discussion about services or programs that may benefit you. A registration for Council on Aging services will be completed at that time.  The Senior Services Resource Specialist helps complete application forms and related paperwork to apply for other services and benefits. Referrals for services not provided by our agency can be made with your permission. The Senior Services Resource Specialist may contact you from time to time to update client information.


The Information and Referral Specialist maintains a library which includes pamphlets and booklets on a wide variety of topics. Information can be obtained by contacting our office (419-228-5135).  We are happy to make a home visit if you prefer. If the information is not readily available, an effort will be made to find the resources to meet your needs.


The Information and Referral Specialist can also help complete application forms and related paperwork to apply for other services and benefits.
