AARP Taxe Aide thank you

On behalf of the AARP Tax Aide Program we wish to thank
all of the newspapers who helped to make this a very successful
tax year. You all know that without your cooperation we could
not make this such a great venue for people to use. We have no
budget to advertise this program so we count on you to get the
good news to everyone.
We have 11 sites in the Lorain County area. All of our sites
were extremely busy with people anxious to complete their fed-
eral, state and school district taxes in a timely fashion. We are
a free service to seniors, low to moderate income families and
singles. Our program is entirely run by volunteers just wishing
to serve the underserved who can take advantage of our service.
We are extremely fortunate to have volunteers at our librar-
ies, senior centers and town halls who take all the phone calls
from constituents trying to make an appointment to come in
at their location. They not only take the phone calls they also
provide a space for us to accomplish this task. They, like you,
make this program the success that it is. Thank all of you from
the bottom of our hearts.

Have you ever thought about what you might need in order
to stay in your home as you age? We may be able to help! The
Lorain County Office on Aging offers Options Counseling to
eligible older adults (60+ years) and their families to devel-
op a long-term plan to help them stay in their home. We can
help you to learn about and apply for community resources you
may not know exist. We also work with you to make sure that
your long-term care needs and wishes are both made known
and honored.
Options Counseling is also available to help eligible old-
er adults successfully transition from hospitals, rehabilitation
facilities and other long/short term nursing facilities back into
their homes.
