Our Board of Directors
Elderly Services is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. Our board of directors is made up of devoted volunteers who serve as community ambassadors and who oversee our fiscal and program stability and our future direction.

Our 80-plus employees and more than 400 volunteers are, of course, absolutely key to our success! Employees range in age from 17 to 88 and serve as nurses, counselors, cooks, activity leaders, van drivers, cleaners, and office support.
We love volunteers! They add extra attention and entertainment talent that increases program quality. We have visiting babies and 87-year-old activity assistants. Volunteers might give travel talks, play the piano, lead walking groups, or set tables.
Our board, our staff, and our volunteers make up our community of helpers.
