Information, Referral and Follow-up:
By contacting the Senior Services Center, senior citizens and their families can obtain information and access to helpful agencies and resources in a timely manner. Follow-up service is provided to ensure that the client's needs have been met.
Personal assistance is provided by professional staff who assess the needs of individual clients and accordingly plan and arrange needed services. A case manager monitors the provision of services and assists older persons in maintaining their maximum independence.
Other services provided at the Center include:
- Recreational activities
- Limited health screening
- Nutrition education
- Group information
- Case Management
To receive services, seniors must be at least 50 years of age, independent and a resident of Rockdale County. Some services and programs are available only to those 60 years of age and up.
The information and referral specialist will obtain some basic information and refer the senior to either a case manager or to the senior center manager. The staff will evaluate the senior with a detailed assessment to determine what services are needed. If the referred senior citizen is eligible and desires the services, they will begin as soon as a space is available for the particular service.
For further information or to request services contact the Information and Referral Specialist.
