Aging Services Mission:
To support a comprehensive system of services for senior citizens, caregivers and families through advocacy, planning, coordination, direct services and program funding. Our services are helping families and individuals remain safe and productive members of their communities, building a stronger Onondaga County for all of us.
Our Long Term Goals Include:
• Increase access to a comprehensive and coordinated system of services for older people, (especially those in greatest social and economic need) in order to enable them to remain in a safe and appropriate living environment.
• Develop and support preventive health and wellness activities to promote healthy older adults.
• Strengthen our leadership and advocacy role, and recognition, in the community as the primary source for information on programs and services, major trends, problems and causes, best practices, and funding resources relating to older adults.
