Housing: There's No Place Like Home

Department of the Aging staff will assist you in finding housing developments that meet your needs and preferences for location, features, services, price and more.

Housing definitions will be explored and guidance given on critical questions you should ask when comparing housing alternatives.

When community housing is no longer an option, we can assist you in the process of supportive living or nursing home decisions.

HEAP payments appear as credits on an approved applicant's heating bill and are not meant to substitute regular payments. Read more
