Agency to assist seniors during hot summer
Wyandotte/Leavenworth County Area Agency on Aging is prepared to assist seniors during intense heat waves this spring and summer.
The organization has a list of names already prepared of homebound seniors to contact at a moment’s notice.
The agency’s clients have contact information to reach their case managers in case they have needs related to the heat.
If there happens to be a red alert for an extended period of time, all Area Agency on Aging staff, including directors and managers, begin calling the list of homebound clients to check up on the seniors and see if there is a need for assistance.
The Meals-on-Wheels clients were sent a flier alerting them fans are available at the Area Agency on Aging if there is a need.
The agency is asking for the community’s assistance in spreading the word about its program and heat related assistance for homebound seniors.
