Reaching Out to Older Adults!
CEFN doesn’t just primarily focus on helping older adults make healthy food choices and becoming more physically active, we are also concerned about their holistic needs! The Senior Advocate Outreach program is built on the belief that older adults should benefit from all available resources and social services to help with their overall health and wellness, socialization, and social service needs and resources
CEFN’s Outreach Program
CEFN is well connected with programs such as Caregivers America, Philadelphia Corporation of Aging, and other social service programs who are willing to make contributions to CEFN’s mission. Sadly, we are faced with the harsh realities that our seniors are economically vulnerable, may be dependent on loved ones, and/or are chronically ill.
It is important that we go out into senior living environments to visit those who are at risk, facing eviction, in isolation, facing abuse, and much more! It is CEFN’s mission to improve their quality of life.
What We’ll Assist You With
Public transportation is necessary because older adults decline in vision, strength, endurance, and memory
Older adults face challenges regarding housing whether it be affordability and other accessibility issues
Rising health costs, medication, and a need of nutritional change, many seniors find it difficult to gain access to proper meals
The elderly need care, comfort, and support to complete daily tasks, be satisfied, preserve self-esteem, and keep their independence
Facing obstacles such as physical challenges and medical issues, home health promotes quality care to ensure good quality of life
To protect them from abuse and exploitation, senior citizens must be taught their rights and protection from legal vulnerability
