Healthy IDEAS (Identifying Depression, Empowering Activities for Seniors) - is 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 one, 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 440-442-2626 x 244.

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 Christina at 440-442-2626 x244 for more information or to schedule an appointment.
