With a lifetime of wisdom and invaluable lessons to help shape a burgeoning community, seniors matter. During the month of July, we are focusing on Senior Independence.
Join Our Cause During the Month of July
Independence is a basic human right that is valued by all. For an elderly person, independence means something very precious. A major component of independence is feeling in control. Approximately 9 out of 10 people over age 65 want to continue living in their own homes. 

Family Matters is a resource for Senior Independence and a proud leader in the field of geriatric social services. We are committed to protecting and defending the rights of our older neighbors.  Read More
