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 remember, if you find you need a live person, you can always call our Information Department at 713-1556 for direct and personalized answers to your questions.
To learn more about what Resources for Seniors does, look on the left side 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 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 by using the Referrals link at the top of each page.
For broader information about services offered in the Wake County community for older adults, you may want to access our Resource Lists, which also have individual links in the navigation bar on the left side of this page. Each of these lists is available as a Word or PDF document, and they include information about services offered by many other agencies, not just Resources for Seniors. These include home care agencies, long-term care facilities, affordable housing communities, etc.
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. You can print a copy yourself from our Directory page, or pick one up at any of our locations. See our Contact page for addresses.
To go deeper into the particulars of all these services, programs, and facilities, you can go into our Community Resource Database. From here you can search by keyword (e.g., "Assisted Living") and get a list of all the services in that category. Each service then has its own page with contact information, eligibility guidelines, a link to that program's own website, etc.
Finally, if you are really looking for services somewhere else, not in Wake County, NC, look for the Find Resources link in the left navigation area, which will lead you to links for 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: 713-1556 will reach one of our Information Specialists from 8-5 Monday-Friday.
