Senior Resources List for Tallahassee/Big Bend Area

I found an excellent list of services and agencies available in the Tallahassee/Big Bend area for caregivers. The list is several pages long, and encompasses numerous aspects of caregiving, including support groups, health care agencies, elder law legal services, fitness, housing, hearing and vision information, end of life concerns, and much, much more. There are several printable charts for phone numbers of agencies. The entire document is 43 pages long, so if you don't need everything I recommend finding the particular pages you're interested in and just printing those.

The City of Tallahassee produced this document, and I really appreciate what they've put together to help us.

If you live elsewhere, try contacting your local caregiving and city agencies to see if a similar document is available for your community. If not, think about trying to compile the list for others and post it on the Internet, or send a copy to your community agencies so they can share the list with other caregivers. Together, we can make a difference in one another's lives.

Hoping this helps you as much as it does me.
Blessings,
