Older Adult Program
With the population of Bucks County living longer and longer each year, specialized services for persons over 60 become increasingly important.
The Family Service Older Adult programs are helping older adults live better today and in the future. Through a coordinated approach to information and services, these programs strive to keep seniors independent and in their homes.
Bucks County Housing Authority Case Management
Ruby and Joan talk about how having a social worker available to them has made their lives easier.
Family Service Association provides information and referrals for low-to-moderate income elderly and disabled residents of the Bucks County Housing Authority (BCHA) managed housing sites.
This program was started as a partnership between the BCHA and FSA to meet the growing needs of elderly and disabled adults who were at high risk of losing their independence.
If you, or someone you know, are living in a BCHA managed housing site, we can help.
Here are some other things we have done for residents:
- Explained medical billing and insurance charges, setting up payment plans when needed
- Made referrals for personal care aides and cleaning services
- Obtained food and supplies from food pantries
- Accessed help to pay for prescriptions
- Assisted with applications for Medicaid, food stamps, and rent rebates
- Helped obtain hearing aids and dentures
- Register for Bucks County Transport
This program is free for residents of all nine BCHA sites.
