During retirement planning, the planning team recognizes that a person over the age of 60 may need services and supports similar to a senior citizen. However, primary services, funded by the regional center, will continue to be available.
Supports, services and program options provided to a senior may assist that individual to retain his or her ability to function as independently as possible. Goals for seniors include remaining mobile, physically capable and competent in activities of daily living.
Primary program services for seniors include activities which promote the following: age appropriate leisure and recreation opportunities, general health and well-being, social and friendship circles, life review and reminiscence, and adjustment to loss.
