Older Adults & Persons with Disabilities

Helping neighbors in NWI find the care and support they need

According to Census data, more than 17 million Americans age 65+ are economically insecure, and people with disabilities are twice as likely to experience poverty as their nondisabled peers. These individuals can struggle with rising housing and health care costs, inadequate nutrition, lack of access to transportation, diminished savings, and job loss.

At CoAction, we provide support to older persons and persons with disabilities so that they can remain in their homes and communities, be well, and maintain as much independence as possible for as long as possible. These opportunities and resources include:

Learn About Options for Needed Care

Options Counseling helps people develop a plan for long-term care needs. Applicants are asked a series of questions regarding how much help they need for their activities of daily living including dressing, bathing, medication management, and ambulation. We also ask about income and assets to learn about financial qualifications. Our counselors work with families to find the programs that will be the best fit for each person’s needs. 

CoAction is Your Local Area Agency on Aging

We help older adults maintain high quality of life and continue living independently.  Our Area Agency on Aging helps people find answers to questions, guides them  to appropriate resources, and provides direct assistance in accessing services.
