Getting old is not for sissies, as Bette Davis once said, and neither is being a caregiver for an aging parent or loved one. At Resources for Seniors, we are trying to do what we can to make it easier, and we hope that this website will be part of that.
If you are looking for help for yourself or someone else, here are some ways to go about it using this website, but if you find you need a live person, you can always call ourInformation Department, 919-713-1556, for direct and personalized answers to your questions.
To learn more about what Resources for Seniors does, look at the top of this page, and click on "Services." This will open up a menu of the different types of services Resources for Seniors offers, including direct care, support services, information, etc. Under each of those categories is a list of more specific services, including things like adult day care, home repair, etc. For each of those, there is a separate page describing what we do and how to get that service. In some cases, a referral can be made through this website via the Referrals page.
For broader information about services offered in the Wake County community for older adults, look at our Resource Lists page, which has handouts on different topics available in Word Document and PDF format, which include information about services offered by many other agencies, not just Resources for Seniors. Topics include home care, long-term care, subsidized and affordable housing, and more.
If you like information that you can hold in your hands or read in bed, our Directory of Resources for Older Adults and Adults with Disabilities in Wake County may be what you want. This is a printed book with detailed information in resources in Wake County, NC. See the Directory page for more information.
To go deeper into the particulars of all these services, programs, and facilities, you can search our Community Resource Database. You can search by keyword (e.g., "Assisted Living"), and get a list of all the services in that category. Each service has its own page with contact information, eligibility guidelines, etc.
Finally, if you are really looking for services somewhere else, not in Wake County, NC, go to the Find Resources page , which has links to find services in other areas.
We hope this little tour of our site will help you find what you need, but again, don't hesitate to call if you need help finding something or just want a listening ear: 919-713-1556 will reach one of our Information Specialists from 8-5 Monday-Friday.
