  • Resources and information to any older adult, their family and friends, and/or community and advocacy groups.

Advocates for Elders also conduct:

  • Public presentations relevant to Aging and Disability Services Division's programs and services
  • Outreach to locate and identify resources and services

Advocates for Elders also participate on special older adult task forces and work with senior community groups. The services of the Advocate for Elders are free and confidential.
