Those NH residents 65 and older are the fastest growing segment of the state's population. Now, this group and their caregivers have a newly published tool, the 2009 Seniors Count Resource Guide, that contacins listings of key services available to seniors in the Greater Nashua, Manchester and Concord communities.
The Seniors Count approach has been about forming partnerships to redefine and ensure independence for older people, and in doing so, creates a better life for all, said Seniors Count Project Director Arlene Kershaw. By bringing together a broad cross-section of people and agencies, we have harnessed a network of resources, connections, knowledge and expertise that creates positive, systemic change for seniors, allowing them to age independently in their community.
This publication is a collaboration of the State of NH Department of Health & Human Services, ServiceLink Resource Centers for Hillsborough and Merrimack Counties, and Business NH Magazine. The Seniors Count Senior Services Resource Guide has been distributed to doctors' offices, hospitals, community centers and other venues throughout the greater Manchester, Nashua and Concord areas.
