Residents create guide to aging well in CH
Did you know that Heights Libraries will deliver and pick up books for seniors? This is just one bit of information that is now available in the Cleveland Heights Aging Well at Home Resource Guide.
Two Forest Hill residents created the 30-page guide, which contains a listing of local nonprofit and governmental programs and resources, organized by the general needs of senior citizens.
They had two purposes in mind in designing the guide and creating a CH Aging Well At Home Initiative: (1) to provide seniors with useful information to enable them to stay in their homes longer as they age; and (2) to offer a tool for neighbors and other volunteers and caregivers, to initiate conversations, provide a helping hand, facilitate connections, and expand supportive relationships within the city. FutureHeights and the Cleveland Heights Office on Aging support this initiative.
