The Area Agency on Aging has opened AGEconnect on 7th, an Aging Resource Center, at 2950 N. 7th St. for seniors to make connections to community resources and services.
The multi-purpose building, constructed in 1970, was recently updated and renovated “to accommodate the growing needs among our older adult population,” said Area Agency on Aging President and CEO Mary Lynn Kasunic.
Visitors to the first floor Aging Resource Center can access Medicare counseling through the Area Agency’s Benefits Assistance Program and information and connection to community resources from the Senior HELP LINE staff. Care coordinators will provide support and guidance to caregivers. Legal assistance for low-income seniors age 60 and older is available by appointment.
Information about the State Health Insurance Program (SHIP) and Senior Medicare Fraud Patrol also is available. Stop by or call the 24-Hour Senior HELP LINE at 602-264-HELP (4357) to make an appointment. For hard of hearing and deaf individuals, text 520-775-1899.
AGEconnect on 7th is open from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. For more information, visit www.aaaphx.org.
