resources for aging adults
Based on conversations with community leaders across the US, many aging adults are unaware of the available care options and programs that can help maintain their independence and quality of life. So we created a free resource that provides information on topics like financial support and care options that are available in Fairport. What we are most excited about is our comprehensive database of senior living communities which also includes thoughtful and honest reviews from residents in your community.
