Our Services

We Help Seniors

Ensure Financial Security

The Elder Financial Safety Center at The Senior Source is a safe and trusted place for older adults and their loved ones to get expert, professional, and unbiased guidance to ensure financial well-being- from essential needs to helping those who have experienced financial exploitation.

Support Caregivers and Those Aging Alone

Caring for a senior loved one can be challenging and even overwhelming at times. Don’t go it alone. The Senior Source’s Caregiver Support Program is here to help you maintain your well-being as you care for a parent, spouse, or loved one.

Navigate Long-Term Care Options

Older adults in nursing homes and assisted living facilities should live out their later years with dignity and respect in a safe environment. Long-term care ombudsmen help ensure that happens for the 16,000 residents living in Dallas County facilities.

Learn Technology

The Senior Source is proud to partner with Senior Planet from AARP. The Senior Planet program enables older adults to come together and find ways to learn, work, create, exercise, and thrive in today’s digital age.

Through a variety of program offerings, older adults will feel more comfortable accessing technology and will improve their quality of life.

Prevent Frauds and Scams

Financial fraud occurs every 15 seconds. At the Elder Financial Safety Center, we provide education, resources, and tools to help you prevent financial fraud and protect yourself from scams.

Scammers are sophisticated and use minimal details they can find about you online, from your mail, or someone you know to make up stories and scenarios that seem real or possible to get you to fall for their scam.

Utilize Medicare Counseling

The Senior Source can help you understand your Medicare options and help you choose the plan that’s right for you. We give you unbiased and independent information so you can make an informed decision. Medicare is not “one-size-fits-all.” Each person’s needs are different. Your choice in a Medicare program should best match your specific needs.

Engage in Volunteer Opportunities

Looking for a way to give back and stay connected in your community? Research shows that older adults benefit physically, mentally and emotionally by volunteering. The Senior Source can help you put your skills and experience to work. You’ll meet other seniors and make a difference in the lives of others!

Understand Dementia 

The Senior Source has multiple programs that can greatly benefit seniors with dementia and those who care for them. There is no charge for the services, but clients must qualify for certain services. We also have a Dementia Live Simulation program that helps loved ones learn what it’s like to have dementia.
