Are you worried about an elderly relative? Have questions about how to help? Do you need information about services? Do you or a loved one need emotional support and stress relief?

We love helping elders and their families! Our counselors provide psycho-social support and problem-solving to individual elders, older couples, and to family members who are concerned about elderly loved ones.

We can help you through face-to-face meetings, over the phone, or online via Zoom. We can meet here at Elderly Services or offer a home visit. We help with both local and long-distance eldercare concerns.

Elderly Services offers affordable hourly counseling rates for you. In some cases, we will bill original/government Medicare for counseling.
