A guiding hand. At any age or stage of life, we can all use the comfort of knowing others are there for us—helping us through a difficult transition, showing us we have options and reminding us that with change comes new opportunity. For more than 40 years, Lifespan has been helping older adults and their caregivers approach aging with greater information, supportive services and the guidance to make the most of the years ahead. 


I have questions about services for myself, my spouse, my parents

Lifespan is here to help you and your family with expert information and guidance about services and options for older adults. Just call us to speak with an Eldersource eldercare advisor, or request a personal meeting with a care manager who can assess your situation and link you to supportive services. At Lifespan, we provide the non-biased, nothing-to-sell information you need to make good choices and informed decisions.
