The first and foremost goal of our non-profit organization is to make a difference in as many people's lives as possible.

ABOUT US

The Philadelphia Senate on Aging has served the elderly for over three decades. Our members have proudly counseled their peers regarding Medicare and Medicaid issues, saving them thousands in medical expenses. We've assisted clients in a myriad of ways: averting evictions, utility shut-offs, housing adaptations, mortgage assistance, rent/real estate debates, PACE prescriptions, etc. We all are volunteers 

 

We've been working with several clients:  one needed a stairglide for a family member and some other services - DONE;  another was paying $200 co-pay for meds – we were  able to get it for her AND have applied to get her meds for FREE  via the manufactuer’s prescription Assistance Program.   A couple was paying over $500/month for Medicare Health supplement.  We referred them for counseling and they are paying “0” premium per month.  We hosted the “Medicare 101” workshop, conducted  by the Director of Apprise, Mayor’s Commission On Services to the Aging, and were pleased that several people applied for the Apprise Training: one person completed the training and is now  equip to counsel seniors regarding medicare and Medicaid.   Our MAIN goal is to have trained counselors available in their local church or community .
