Assistance:

Neighborhood Advisor 

Services are free and confidential for adults 60 years and over.  Our Neighborhood Advisor is a trained Senior Services Professional that assists older adults in obtaining the services they need in order to remain independent in their home setting. They promote awareness of community services, make referrals, connect older adults with services and follow-up to ensure they received services.  Appointments are available in the senior’s home or at our center.  

Our Neighborhood Advisor can help you:

  • Complete medical applications and other forms.
  • Locate needed services, such as Health Care, Legal Advice, Transportation, Housing, Nutrition, Exercise, Socialization, and Caregiver Information.
  • Provide information about income stretching programs, such as Social Security Income, SNAP (Food Stamps), Employment, EPIC and Home Energy Assistance Program (HEAP), and IT-214 Form Property Tax Reduction.

To see if this program can be of help to you, a family member, friend or neighbor, contact Kathleen Boccio (Eastside Neighborhood Advisor) by calling 315-478-8634 x3 or emailing Kathyb@westcottcc.org.  (Sponsored by Office for Aging Department of Adult & Long Term Care Services.)

Classes:

Strength & Balance Program (Exercise)

Tuesdays 1:00-1:45 PM. This class is FREE to adults over 60!  Come to learn different techniques for strengthening your body and improving your balance at your own pace to help prevent falls. Exercises are modified to meet your needs. Chair exercises are also used along with great music! Fred Wilson of Fit Over Fifty is a certified fitness instructor specializing in senior fitness.  Pre-registration is not necessary, drop-ins are welcome! Registration forms are available at every class.  Thank you to our class sponsor The Rotary Club of Syracuse.
Our concern about the frequency and serious consequences of falls in older people led us to find a successful intervention (muscle strengthening and balance retraining). Risk factors for falls considered the most readily modified are muscle strength, flexibility, balance and reaction time.
