What We Do
Personal Advocate Services has trained volunteers to help older adults and link individuals to community resources. They focus in the area of housing, healthcare, crime, and elder abuse. Personal Advocate volunteers assist older adults in Multnomah, Clackamas, and Washington counties. These services are at no charge to our clients.
Speaker's Bureau provides a variety of informational workshops on important topics affecting older adults on how to stay safe and get connected to social services.
The Commission is a 31-member panel that advises local officials on programs and policies for older adults. "When the Commission speaks, government acts!"
Age Friendly Business Certification Since 1993, Age Friendly Business Certification has been helping businesses better serve the older customer by using our nationally recognized standard of service. Every organization is evaluated by volunteers and provided feed back on how they can best serve the older customer. We certify a wide range of businesses from retail sites, healthcare organizations to service companies. The elder population represents a large and growing consumer group. Implications for business are clear: Improved access to older consumers and knowledge of their needs are important to be competitive in business today.
