About CARES

CARES is a not-for-profit organization that has been providing services to older persons and their families since 1973.

We offer a broad spectrum of services and programs to help older adults live as they wish—independently in their homes.

CARES Non-Profit In-Home services are dedicated to helping people who have aging challenges live independently in their homes for as long as possible.

CARES Adult Day Care services are open Monday through Friday and provide a pleasant and engaging atmosphere for loved ones while caregivers work or run errands.

CARES Senior Centers help people stay connected to their world and their community through social activities, computer learning, educational programs, and recreational activities.

CARES Wellness Programs help people stay informed and encourage adults to develop and maintain healthy lifestyles to live a better, fuller life.

CARES Senior Health Clinic is a haven for uninsured people over the age of 55 who cannot work because of health issues. This is a non-funded program and operates from the generosity of our donors. Health Services at the clinic are provided by volunteer medical professionals and staff.
