Resources for Seniors And The Disabled

 

Hardship – unfortunately! – takes on many forms. Aging and disability are some of them. On this page One Human Community lists some helpful resources for seniors, persons with disabilities and their families.

Hardship – in any form – is a challenge. The right information will help make yours and your loved ones’ lives a little easier.
