I have questions about services & options.
Call us to speak with an eldercare advisor or request a personal meeting with a care manager. Specialized services for families caring for someone with Alzheimer's disease also are available. At Lifespan, we provide the non-biased, nothing-to-sell information you need to make good choices and informed decisions.
I'm looking for guidance on insurance or finances
Understanding health insurance plan options and handling personal finances can be overwhelming. Lifespan provides monthly assistance with bill paying, budgeting and checkbook balancing. We offer monthly Medicare 101 workshops and personal consultations about Medicare options.
I need help with staying healthy and daily life
We’re focused on helping you add “life to years” by providing health and wellness opportunities. Check out our award-winning and welcoming cafés within the Maplewood, Eastside and Westside YMCAs. Take one of our “Matter of Balance” workshops that help prevent falls, Tai Chi or learn to live better with a chronic disease in our “Living Healthy” workshops.
I want to volunteer
Our reach is expanded three-fold by our volunteers. Roles vary and are usually extremely flexible. We train volunteers to help older adults with bill paying tasks. We train ombudsmen to advocate for residents of nursing homes. We train volunteers to provide respite for caregivers. We train volunteers to provide information about Medicare, among many other roles.
