Seniors ServicesHelp for Seniors and their Caregivers

WoodGreen helps 12,000 seniors and people with disabilities each year.

All of WoodGreen’s services for seniors have one goal in common: to allow people to remain in their own homes, in their own communities, for as long as possible, and to age with dignity. We offer social recreational progamming, help for caregivers, help with documentation and much more. Our staff are available to help you today.

The services we provide to seniors and their caregivers also include:

  • supportive housing
  • meal programs
  • adult day programs 
  • programs for people suffering from Alzheimer’s
  • transportation to medical appointments and other outings

"Before coming to the Adult Day Program I was never happy.  My family dynamics are very confusing and I didn’t find the joy in living my life and on top of everything, I had a stroke.  I am blessed with four very caring daughters that provided me with ongoing care and support.  They introduced me to WoodGreen Community Services and I have been attending the Adult Day Program five days a week for 12 years.  At the program I have made many friends and every day I enjoy the program and the company of all staff.  They are very encouraging and supportive.”
