Assistance for Older Adults with COVID-Related Needs

The Kerr-Tar AAA received federal grant funding through the CARES Act to support COVID-19 related needs of adults age 60 and older in the region.  COVID related needs include food, PPE, assistive items for the home, medical alert devices, etc.  Services are available through referrals only, via physicians’ practices, social workers, case managers, and other human and social service agencies.  CARES services are provided at no charge to the older adult.  For more information CLICK HERE.
