Senior Services provides for, or otherwise arranges, a variety of services for Flagler County residents who are over the age of 60.

They include the following: case management; congregate dining; counseling; Elderly Heat Energy Assistance Program (EHEAP); home delivered meals; homemaking; information and referral; nutrition education; outreach; public education; recreation; respite care, both in-home and in-facility; screening; and, transportation.
COMMUNITY CARE FOR THE ELDERLY (CCE)
Case managers assist in identifying an individual’s physical and emotional needs and developing a care plan that addresses those needs. Once a care plan has been established, the case manager arranges services and monitors for quality assurance and client satisfaction and well-being.
Services are funded by the state's Community Care for the Elderly grant and the county general fund and include the following:
In-home personal care
In-home and in-facility respite for caregivers
Home delivered meals
This service offers five pre-packaged, frozen meals complete with bread, dairy beverage, dessert and are diabetic-friendly. The meals are delivered every Tuesday to individuals who are over the age of 60 and are eligible for this service. Meals meet 1/3 of the USDA suggested daily nutritional requirements and provide consistency in both quality and quantity. Meals can be heated in a microwave or a conventional oven.

Client Pet Support Program: Knowing that seniors with pets are 36% less likely to report loneliness and have 21% fewer doctor visits, Senior Services is proud to announce that it has received a $1,000 grant from Meals on Wheels America to support its client pet support program. Funding will be used to provide food, supplies and care for Flagler clients with pets - all of which can be financially and physically burdensome. (July 2016)
