The Eldercare Locator is a nationwide service funded by the Administration for Community Living/Administration on Aging. It is designed to help older persons and caregivers locate local support resources in all parts of the country. This is a very valuable service if you need to find a program in an area outside the one in which you live.
The Eldercare Locator can be reached by calling 1-800-677-1116 or visiting the Eldercare Locator website at www.eldercare.acl.gov. The website includes a searchable service database as well as a feature that allows you to chat online with an information specialist.
