On behalf of Southeast Senior Services, a division of Catholic Community Service, I would like to thank the Juneau Community Foundation for providing a $50,000 grant to support the Senior Wrap-Around Program.
By funding this program which includes the Gatekeeper Program, individuals, businesses and community groups are educated on how to identify isolated, at-risk seniors and refer them for assistance. In response to these calls, case managers provide follow-up that may include offering information, meeting with the elder and/or family, assessing needs and exploring services to meet these needs. The grant also makes in-home counseling services available for emotional support and intervention.
As a result of funding through this grant, vulnerable seniors in Juneau have received support to improve their quality of life and live as safely and independently as possible in their own homes.
For more information about these programs or to schedule a Gatekeeper Program presentation, call the Senior &Caregiver Resource Center at 463-6177.
