ElderCare Locator
The Eldercare Locator is a public service of the U.S. Administration on Aging. It's a first step in finding resources for older adults in any U.S. community. Just one phone call or Website visit provides an instant connection to resources that enable older persons to live independently in their communities. The service links those who need assistance with state and local area agencies on aging and community-based organizations that serve older adults and their caregivers.
