PROJECT BEACON

Project Beacon is an invaluable resource for seniors who are facing challenges as they age. Under the guidance of a licensed social worker who specializes in senior issues, the program includes:

  • Case management

  • Short term counseling

  • Referrals

  • Entitlement assistance

  • Home assessments

  • Caregiver support

  • Mental health education (including anxiety and depression)

  • Advocacy in housing, healthcare, financial, and legal matters

Support is given on a one-on-one basis or in group sessions. When appropriate, family members join the counseling and support sessions. Specialists are invited to speak to our members on emerging issues in the senior community.

Project Beacon also assists homebound seniors and links them to services that will provide safety and support.
