GWSA Community Support Services help seniors and caregivers remain independent, healthy and enjoying quality of life. Services include education, programs and support for age-related concerns, eating well, gentle exercise and social engagement. Services are provided in participants’ homes and in community locations to reach isolated older adults who face barriers to participate such as transportation, poor health, ability to pay and lack of support.
Membership in the GWSA is not necessary to receive services, and fees are low or no cost. Front line service delivery is facilitated by trained, senior peer volunteers, who through their similar life experiences, provide encouragement, support, empowerment and the skills for self-management.
GWSA Community Support Services are listed below. Please click the link to access more information for each Program:

The GWSA Community Support Services thanks all of our sponsors who make our work possible. It is through their generosity we are able to improve the quality of life of the older adults we serve.
