Few counties' senior services stand up to Delaware County's

To the Editor:

I hope the citizens of our community will support the senior services levy. Thanks to in-home services provided, my mother, who is 92, has been able to live on her own for several years. She recently moved in with us, and her case worker was most helpful in identifying services that will continue to assist her. As a caregiver, I appreciated the support.

I have found the case workers from Council For Older Adults to be caring and diligent professionals who are truly interested in helping seniors live their lives safely and with dignity. If you have not needed any services provided by the senior services levy, I urge you to talk to people who have found those services very helpful. If you talk to individuals living in other counties, you will find very few have the resources for seniors that are available in Delaware County.

Let's continue to help our seniors live safely and with dignity in their own homes as long as possible.
