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
TO EAT OR NOT TO EAT - One of our counselors noticed a client buying dog food in the supermarket; she knew this lady never owned a pet. The ladies had a brief conversation and the client explained she had been cutting the food budget to buy medications. An appointment was made for the next day. The client was assisted in applying for food stamps, the PACE prescription program and was eligible for a rent rebate. The counselor, 80+ years old, had resolved all the issues. No more dog food for THIS client
