Serving over 480,000 older adults throughout the East Bay, Empowered Aging is a nonprofit organization dedicated to representing the interests that impact our isolated senior community.
We believe aging is a natural phase of life, deserving of respect and dignity. Every day we empower, educate, and partner with older adults and adults with disabilities to best meet their unique needs – from providing opportunities to stay connected to the activities they love to ensure they are free from neglect and abuse. Because when our elders thrive, we all benefit from their unique contributions and collective wisdom.
Your funding helps provide the following services:
- Telephone reassurance and friendly visiting helps to prevent isolation, premature institution, and mitigate elder abuse.
- The Residents Empowerment Program allows us to partner with legal services to get Advanced Health Care Directives and Durable Power of Attorneys completed for those in long-term care.
- The Elder and Adults with Disabilities Justice Program in Solano County facilitates access to care and services needed by elder abuse victims and their families.
