Photo I.D. Card

The Senior Citizen Photo I.D. Card provides verification of age. There is a one-time suggested contribution of $2.00 for this service; however, no one is denied a photo I.D. card because of an inability to contribute. Photos are generally taken in the main office. Call the Department for more information.

Public Information

The Department of the Aging offers speakers on a variety of aging services and related topics. Contact the Department to arrange a speaker for your group.

A variety of brochures and pamphlets dealing with services and programs for the senior population are available at the Department's main office in Olean. Many of these brochures are also available at Senior Wellness and Nutrition Program Sites or from outreach workers.

Staff can assist with the necessary forms. Staff also can assist in identifying needs, encourage the acceptance of aid, and provide contact with needed services. Read more

Information Assistance

Growing older can raise questions for which we do not have ready answers. The Department can assist seniors in answering these questions as well as providing guidance to other community resources. The Department maintains a complete, up-to-date listing of the services, programs, and agencies available in Cattaraugus County and the region.

Get location and contact information for the Department of Aging or one of our Outreach Offices.
