22nd Annual Conference on Aging

Happy Senior Center Month!

September 1st is the first day of National Senior Center Month, sponsored by our National Institute of Senior Centers (NISC). This year’s theme is “Find Balance at Your Center”. Every day, older adults find balance and whole person wellness at senior centers. Cuyahoga County is “home” to nearly 80 senior centers and senior service programs, and DSAS currently funds twenty-two (22) of them. Click here for a list of these senior centers.

During the month of September, we encourage you to make time to visit your local center to see how it helps older adults find balance and whole-person wellness. We also encourage Cuyahoga County senior centers to showcase the opportunities that you provide for older adults to engage physically, mentally, and emotionally in our communities. Senior centers are invited to use NISC materials to celebrate their work and promote a positive image of aging, or contact the DSAS Community Office on Aging for suggestions. DSAS also will use the month of September to highlight senior centers in Cuyahoga County that are not only providing balance and whole-person wellness, but are also on the cutting edge of Senior Center Innovation. Stay tuned for more information and good news, particularly on our Senior Center Innovation Forum and campaign to promote positive images of aging!

Adult Protective Services On-Line Referral

The Cuyahoga County Division of Senior and Adult Services is pleased to share with our community the addition of a web portal that will allow any individual to make a referral concerning the well-being or safety of an adult, directly to Adult Protective Services by clicking this link:


It is an easy tool that consists of four screens. Upon completion of the referral, it will be reviewed by the supervisor of our Centralized Intake Unit, and if appropriate, assigned to an Intake worker for assignment. People making a referral will be contacted and notified that the case was accepted. The person making the referral may be contacted if more information is necessary.

"Senior Center Knowledge Forum a Success"


On May 17, 2016 at Crowne Plaza - Independence, the Division of Senior and Adult Services (DSAS) hosted the "Senior Center Knowledge Forum: Best Practices and New Models of Service", which raised awareness on the importance of senior centers in the continuum of care. Also, at the forum, DSAS announced winners of the four $25,000 Senior Center Innovation Grants. "The launch of the Senior Center Innovation Fund heralds a new era as the Division of Senior and Adult Services creates a path for senior centers to adopt new models that are responsive to the changing needs of senior living in Cuyahoga County", said Division of Senior and Adult Services Administrator, Dr. Richard Jones. Earlier this year, Cuyahoga County released an RFP soliciting proposals from senior center collaboratives comprised of non-profit and/or municipal senior centers, to develop innovative service models for the delivery of senior center services. These four winning collaboratives will compete for two (2) additional grants of $50,000 each, which will be used to help implement their innovative design. The Cuyahoga County Division of Senior and Adult Services will continue to monitor and provide oversight to this process. More information about the winners will be posted soon.
