Opened in 2012 at Springfield Hospital, the Geriatric Resource Center gives older adults, children of aging parents, and caregivers access to educational information on aging-related health topics. In addition, you will find helpful information and applications for local, state and national senior assistance services and programs.
The information provided at the resource center includes topics such as keys to finding the right retirement or long-term care community in Delaware County and surrounding counties, tips on long distance caregiving, how to choose a doctor, and mourning the death of a spouse. The center also has information on preparing for surgery, diseases like diabetes in the elderly, and dealing with depression. The resource center also has applications for PACE and PACENET as well as the Pennsylvania Low Income Energy Assistance Program.
Volunteers staff the Center that features a library of pamphlets, books and other materials.
