     SC Aging Help for the Aging

 

Aging is a complicated issue, but the Lieutenant Governor’s Office on Aging (LGOA) is here to help.  The LGOA partners with a network of regional and local organizations to enhance the quality of life for seniors and vulnerable adults. 

 

Working with the LGOA, Area Agencies on Aging (AAAs) divide the state into ten regions, each having staff members who assist with various programs, including home-delivered meals; group dining sites; transportation; home care services; respite; family caregiver support; disease prevention and health promotion; and information and referral services.

 

To further assist, the LGOA recently launched a new website, www.getcaresc.com, which connects seniors, caregivers, and family members with resources (searchable by ZIP code) available in their communities.  If we may be of assistance to you or someone you know, visit our site or contact us at 1-800-868-9095, and ask to be connected to your local Area Agency on Aging.
