Senior Services

Senior Services
Harrison County manages (5) senior citizens centers to assist older citizens on the coast. In addition, we have an information network to provide valid current facts to older individuals or a person inquiring on behalf of an older person of the available resources, services or programs in the community. Transportation may be provided to eligible individuals to and from community services, medical appointments, groceries, and recreation activities.

Senior Citizens Centers
Many older individuals exist on a fixed income with limited opportunities to socialize. They experience isolation and lack of a community base. Senior Centers will enhance the dignity and independence of every individual. There are (5) senior centers administered by the Senior Services Agency.

Notice: Due to online discrepancies with mapping and directional services such as Googlemaps and Mapquest, addresses queried can show a big gap in actual building location. Directional maps below are linked to the actual building location in the mapping service AND NOT to their address location. As a result, the address showing in the directions window is NOT the same as the actual physical address shown below.

Information & Referral
Information is the process of providing valid current data/facts to older individuals or a person inquiring on behalf of an older person of available resources, services, or programs in the community.

Referrals is the process of linking, directing, or connecting older individuals with appropriate agencies or community resources to obtain needed help and assistance.

Home Delivered Meals
We deliver approximately 2,875 meals each week. These meals provide a nutritionally balanced meal delivered to the home of the frail and disabled elderly who are in most need of this service. Home delivered meals will enhance the quality of life and support the maintenance of self-sufficiency, allowing the elderly person to remain at home.

Transportation
Transportation is arranging and providing the transport of eligible seniors to and from community services, medical appointments, groceries, and recreational activities. This service helps to maintain the independence of older adults as long as possible.
