Services Provided by SSOBC
Most older adults remain independent most or all of their lives. Unfortunately, there are many others who find themselves needing help with daily living activities such as meal preparations or getting to their medical appointments. When an older adult cannot provide for themselves these basic needs, SSOBC offers many different options, providing services which allow our county’s elderly to live independently in their own homes longer.
Services are made possible in part by funds generated through Belmont County’s Senior Services Levies, Federal Title Ill and PASSPORT programs through the Area Agency on Aging-Region 9, as well as donations from those we serve. Requests for donations are required for services offered through Title Ill programs. Services are never denied to those who are unable to contribute. Donations are not accepted from residents receiving services through the PASSPORT or Waiver programs.
To be eligible for services, residents must:
- Be at least 60 years of age
- Reside in Belmont County and not be a resident of a nursing home.
- Demonstrate a need for services.
An assessment will be conducted to determine all services available.
