More resources for older adults

Caregivers need support too. If you’re caring for an older adult who has been diagnosed with a disability and is struggling to live independently there is help through the Caregiver Support Program.

How it Works

  • Call SeniorLine 412-350-5460 or 800-344-4319
  • Get matched with a care manager who will come to your home to meet you and your loved one
  • You’ll get a care plan including resources and supports
  • Your care manager will check in with you to make sure you are getting the help you need.

Contact the SeniorLine to get Mirage Messengers* emails including helpful caregiver information.
