Our Senior Service Network

Montage of 4 picture featuring seniors and activities

The Department of Aging and Community Living (DACL) oversees direct services to persons age 60 and older through a Senior Service Network. Within the Senior Service Network are eight community-based agencies, funded by the Office on Aging, to provide health, education and social services. In order to use DACL's services, seniors are required to become registered participants through the Senior Service Network Lead Agency in their Ward.

In-house, the DACL operates one direct services program: ADRC Information and Assistance Unit (request). DACL also operates (with support from the Department of Health Care Finance) the DC Aging and Disability Resource Center (ADRC), a one-stop resource for long-term care information, benefits and assistance for residents age 60 and older and people with disabilities age 18 and older.

Additional services provided through the community agencies include:

  • Adult Day Care
  • Adult Education
  • Emergency Shelter
  • Health Insurance Counseling
  • In-Home Relief
  • Legal Services
  • Transportation
