Department of Aging and Human Services - Senior Information and Assistance

When contacting the Department of Aging and Human Services for the first time, most seniors and caregivers will speak with Senior Information and Assistance (Senior I & A). This first point of contact provides access to information in the areas of housing, Social Security, benefits programs, transportation, and other community programs.

Senior Information and Assistance provides seniors and their families with guidance and referrals to Department of Aging and Human Services programs, public and private community resources, and information regarding assistance programs. Service coordination is available to seniors who require assistance in accessing services, applying for various assistance programs, or simply need help or information about a variety of issues. Senior I & A services are available at the Garvey Senior Activity Center, 8 a.m.-5 p.m., Monday through Friday; the Northern Senior Activity Center, 8 a.m.-5 p.m., Tuesday and Thursday; and at the Loffler Senior Activity Center, 8 a.m.-5 p.m., Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Walk-ins are accepted but making an appointment is highly encouraged as wait times may be substantial. For more information, please call 301-475-4200, ext. *1064, or email
