Senior Services

Senior Services provides a variety of services designed to promote and preserve the independence and integrity of older adults in Douglas County. The department’s vision is a community in which every older adult is able to maintain an independent lifestyle as long as possible without sacrificing their dignity or self-esteem.

Services are available to all Douglas County residents age 60 and older.
