Opportunities for All Ages

Friendly Visitors

Friendly Visitors are placed in Dallas County nursing homes and assisted living facilities to spend time with isolated residents or assist with group activities.

Long-Term Care Ombudsmen

Vulnerable nursing home and assisted living facility residents rely on ombudsmen to listen to their concerns, then advocate on their behalf. Ombudsmen actively impact concerns in many areas including unanswered call buttons, bedsores, roommate problems, staffing, food and unsanitary conditions.

Money Management

For older adults who need help managing their finances, you can help organize bills, balance check books, set-up monthly budgets and assist with check writing.

Guardianship

Some seniors may be incapacitated and require the services of a court appointed guardian. For these elders, staff and trained volunteers work to preserve their health and well-being.

Advocate!

Join the Advocacy Group for Elders (AGE) Council

advocacyEvery day, legislation and policy that determine the quality of life of older adults are discussed at the local, state or national level. But not all older adults know how to effectively communicate their needs to decision makers.

The Advocacy Group for Elders (AGE) brings together community members and works to develop and implement strategies that address critical concerns. Many older adults lack access to information that will allow them to make well-informed decisions. Through email, presentations*, workshops, newsletters and community education forums, AGE staff and older adult advocate volunteers educate other older adults, their families and individuals nearing retirement on issues vital to seniors. Through its advocacy and education, AGE is a tremendous source of empowerment and education for older adults.
