Today, our senior population is living longer than ever before. While the gift of life is a tremendous blessing, aging can be a challenge – especially in the face of poverty, a disability, or isolation. Catholic Social Services is here to help our senior neighbors to age with grace and dignity by helping them experience independent, connected lives.
Our service coordinators help low-income seniors live independently and remain in their homes by linking them with needed resources. CSS has placed a service coordinator at each of the 14 Seton Square Senior affordable housing communities where they assist when seniors are confronted by new challenges such as medical or health issues, tax laws or benefits, or technological hurdles beyond their skill level. This intervention increases seniors’ quality of life and allows them to continue living in their homes with confidence.
If you or a loved one is currently living in a Seton Square apartment and need more information, please contact, Angela Stoller-Zervas at 614-857-1249 or [email protected].
Catholic Social Services helps lonely, homebound seniors stay connected by sending a weekly visitor to provide needed socialization and non-medical assistance so that clients remain independent in their homes.
Through the Supportive Services program, CSS removes barriers for low-income seniors who need assistance to maintain their independence and remain safely in their own homes.
The Money Management Service assists seniors who are having difficulty managing their daily finances by providing assistance with budgeting, bill payment, managing financial assets, and preparing for long term needs.
The Payee Services Program provides individualized financial management to those who are unable to manage their own financial affairs.
Our Transportation service allows seniors and veterans in Licking County to get to non-emergency medical appointments anywhere in the state of Ohio.
Through this program, low-income, active seniors tutor at-risk youth in area schools and Head Start programs and receive a stipend for their work.
