DHS works to help seniors continue living in their homes and independently in the community for as long as possible. DHS develops policy and administers state and federal programs that provide home and community-based services, protective services, caregiver support and alternative housing arrangements.
The Senior LinkAge Line at 800-333-2433, is a free information and assistance service that assists older adults and their caregivers in finding a variety of options for living independently.
