SENIOR SERVICES and RESPITE PROGRAMS
The services are provided under the federal Older American’s Act Programs and include services such as, but not limited to: preventative health, legal services, home delivered meals, and other services to help seniors stay in their own homes.
The Senior Program also provides a trained case manager specialist to provide direct senior client contact and support for in-home services programs such as respite care and Oregon Project Independence Programs. The in-home services programs places a trained care provider to help the senior with activities of daily living to help them stay in their own home.
Respite Care is a temporary, short term relief, for families who are providing direct care to another family member. Family caregivers need to take a break on a regular basis to cope with the stress of constant care giving. Respite care provides this break. For more specific information please call 503-366-6560 or email.
