What's Happening in Senior Services

graphic for MoB

Many older adults experience concerns about falling and restrict their activities. A MATTER OF BALANCE is an award-winning program designed to manage falls and increase activity levels.

Join Erie County Department of Senior Services and Center for Elder Law & Justice for our 2017 Elder Law Day at the Adams Mark Hotel in Downtown Buffalo! This FREE event provides you with the opportunity to attend presentations on a variety of topics, as well as get important information from a variety of elder support services who will be tabling the event! We also offer free parking at the Adams Mark Parking Ramp. 

These are free one hour courses in a variety of topics such as current events, history, and science. Classes are designed to provide older adults with opportunities for intellectual stimulation, learning, and discussion in accessible settings. No homework or no tests, just exciting discussions on academic topics alongside peers with similar interests. 

Review detailed information about every Medicare and Medicaid-certified nursing home in Erie County, including the overall rating based on health inspection, staffing, and quality measure ratings, on our Safer Senior Homes website.

It is difficult and often impossible to surf the internet, read a newspaper or magazine, watch TV or listen to the radio, without hearing about the great benefits of some new supplement or exercise routine that promises to relieve illnesses that have plagued mankind since the beginning of recorded history. All this information can be overwhelming.  What we really need is simple, straight-forward advice from people like us who we can trust.
