In Home Service

For many seniors, living at home for as many years as possible is a priority. In fact, most adults would prefer to age in place—that is, remain in their home of choice as long as possible.  Often however life at home becomes more challenging as aging or illness occurs.  The Alpine Area Agency on Aging provides several programs designed to support aging in place.

Visit the tabs below to see what programs might be right for you or your loved one.

  • Home Delivered Meals
