Aging & Community Services

Overview


The core focus of our office is to support older adults, adults with disabilities and others who are at risk of losing their independence, to continue living in the community as long as possible. For those who can no longer live safely in their homes, we assist in the transition to facility-based care by providing a level of care assessment to confirm the need for skilled nursing care. For general information on our programs, please refer to the Aging Tri Fold Brochure about CCA&CS Programs. Cumberland County Aging and Community Services offers information, opportunities, and services for the following:
            
            People age 60 or older   
     People age 18 to 59    
     Newborns and their parents
