About Us

 

Our mission is to provide for the wellbeing of our aging population. Most of us, as we grow older, require some outside help to keep us living in a manner to which we have become accustomed. It may be medical help, financial assistance, family counseling, travel help, exercising, group socializing, or another personal need. Whatever your need, we can help you find a solution. We don’t provide the service but we can help you find what you need and make it easier for you to “Age in Place.” There are many service providers in the Deerfield Valley. Our goal is to make a match for you with this directory of services.
