Essential resources for senior citizens and their caregivers.
AARP Foundation is here for everyone, 50 years of age or older, who is struggling with problems of hunger, isolation, income or housing. In addition, we are working side by side with trusted organizations in your community and nationwide to help you take control, move forward, and feel like a good provider again.
There is a wide variety of assistance available for Senior Citizens throughout the United States. Many of the assistance programs (i.e. housing, food, and healthcare assistance) can make life easier for the senior citizens and their families.
There are a number of offices across the state that coordinate services and assistance programs for seniors across Missouri. Food, meals, job training programs, referrals, and information are just a few of the services available.
Lutheran Senior Services income-based senior living communities serve older adults (62+) with limited or restricted resources.
For persons with limited financial resources, Medicaid pays for nursing home care. For those who wish to live at home or in assisted living, sometimes Medicaid will pay for care in those locations if it can be obtained at a lower cost than in a nursing home. It does this through "Medicaid Waivers."
Many qualifying seniors don’t participate in low income benefits because often it’s hard to know what’s available. Tools like Benefits Checkup and the Eldercare Locator can help connect seniors with the services and benefits they qualify for.
Older Americans, the elderly, and seniors can receive help from a number of assistance programs. Resources are offered by the federal government, your state, Area Agency on Aging offices, and other non-profits or social service organizations.
