The primary objective of the Office for the Aging is to be the lead advocate for the older population of Sullivan County. All the programs sponsored or directly operated by this office are designed to give choices to older people, with the hope that through these choices they will be able to remain in their own homes and communities as long as possible.
The Office for the Aging gives priority for services to those who are frail, low income, minority, and homebound.
The Office for the Aging is made possible by the Sullivan County Legislature, New York State Office for the Aging, and the Older Americans Act.
Seniors are encouraged to obtain a Senior Identification (ID) card from the Office for the Aging. This is a laminated photo ID that is issued to eligible seniors. This card entitles seniors to use our nutrition and transportation services and other benefits available through our office. To be eligible for an ID card, one must be at least 60 years of age and show proof of age and residence. There is a suggested donation of $5.00 for the photo ID card. The photo can be taken at our office.
The Office for the Aging does not deny services to individuals who are unable to make a donation toward any services provided by this office. Contributions enable us to continue and expand our program to other senior citizens.
