Healthy IDEAS (Identifying Depression, Empowering Activities for Seniors)
A nationally-proven program that reduces symptoms of depression in older adults. If you, or someone you know, are feeling down, sad or hopeless, or are experiencing a loss of interest or pleasure in ordinary activities, please call and speak with an Outreach Worker about whether the Healthy IDEAS program can be an appropriate option.
We can also provide you, or a loved 1, more information about depression. Remember that depression is not a normal part of aging, and depression is treatable. We are looking forward to speaking with you, or a significant other, about taking the first step towards a healthier and happier future. To contact an Outreach Worker call 216-291-3902 or 440-442-2628.
Homemakers are available to assist older adults who are finding it difficult to perform routine housekeeping tasks due to physical limitations. They can help with light housecleaning, laundry, occasional meal preparation, shopping, and errands. Contact Robin Rosner at 216-291-0774 or by email.
Social Work Services
The Outreach/Social Work Department helps individuals and families cope with personal and family problems. Guidance is also offered for decision-making on lifestyle transitions. Counseling may be provided by our staff of licensed social workers or they may assist you in locating another agency to provide additional services. For additional information contact Beda Madden at 440-442-2628, 216-291-3902 or by email.
We maintain a list of skilled chore people based on references and referrals from other older adults. We provide 3 names when a request for chore information is received. Learn more about the service by calling 440-442-2628 or 216-291-3902
Ohio Benefits Bank
If you are having trouble paying your bills as a result of low income or think you might be eligible for food assistance or help with Medicare expenses, we may be able to help. The Ohio Benefit Bank is a public/private partnership that assists people to find out, by screening on the computer, whether they are potentially eligible for a variety of state and federal benefits. After determining possible eligibility, an application can be sent via computer to the correct agency for follow up. In some cases, an appointment at the agency might be required. Community Partnership on Aging has trained staff and volunteers who are able to do the screening and would be happy to meet with you. Please call Beda at 440-442-2628 for more information or to schedule an appointment.
