The Council on Aging Silicon Valley (COASV), the premier advocate for providing services and information to seniors of the Santa Clara Valley since 1974, is proud to unveil the Online Resource Directory.
With this exciting new tool, we are able to offer the most current information on senior-related programs, services, and products. This is a beneficial resource for you because it offers you a tool to search for useful aging services in your community.
Information provided through the Online Resource Directory (ORD) includes such topics as housing, insurance, in-home care, and transportation. The search engine allows you to customize your search for organizations, programs, and products according to your needs based on the service you require, your age, and area served by the organization. You should feel confident knowing that the resources we provide you through the database are screened through consumer protection agencies and/or other monitoring services to ensure your safety. In addition, the information found on the ORD is the same information our COASV call center specialists refer to on a daily basis when you call us.
Understanding the busy life that most caregivers face, we make sure our Online Resource Directory is ready when you are—twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. That way, we can give you information on organizations and support groups while you care for your loved ones. A specialized section on caregiver support offers information on respite, caregiver counseling, and training.
As services provided through our Online Resource Directory are continually updated, it is our hope that the directory allows seniors, caregivers, and fellow community-based providers the ability to find the right service that helps meet the challenges facing seniors today and in the future.
You can find the Online Resource Directory on our website www.coasiliconvalley.com and you can reach our Information and Assistance call specialists by dialing (408)350-3200, option 1.
