Office for the Aging Still Open for Business

Medicare Insurance Counseling: We understand that individuals will continue to turn 65 or become Medicare eligible despite the COVID-19 pandemic.  Our office continues to provide Medicare insurance counseling to our community.  We are doing these insurance appointments via telephone, but we are here to help with your insurance needs.

Congregate Centers: All Congregate Centers will remain closed, but if participants are interested in receiving Home Delivered Meals during this time of closure, please contact our office at 585-268-9390 to register.

AARP Tax Counseling for the Elderly (TCE) Sites: The Department of Treasury and IRS have extended the tax season deadline until July 15, 2020.  If you were scheduled for a tax appointment through our office and it was cancelled due to the AARP TCE site closure, we will be reaching out to you in the next couple months to reschedule your appointment before tax season closes.  We will keep you apprised of all changes as they arise.

Home Delivered Meals: Our office continues to provide Home Delivered Meals to the seniors of Allegany County.  Our office has modified our procedures to ensure the safety of our older adults as well as our drivers/volunteers who are delivering the meals.  During this COVID-19 pandemic, we want to make sure that our older adults have food while staying safe at home.  If you are interested in receiving the Home Delivered Meals, give our office a call at 585-268-9390.

Volunteer Transportation:  The Allegany County Volunteer Transportation program has imposed stricter limitations on certain rides. Although our goal is to continue to provide this service to our older adults, we need to consider the safety of our volunteers and our older adults by amending protocols to decrease the potential spread of any viruses.

Please help us slow the spread by staying safe at home.  Our office is only a phone call away to help if you need anything.  Call us at 585-268-9390 or toll free at 1-866-268-9390.
