Ep. 31: Services for Older Adults and How to Access

“I want us to think about healthy aging, and what changes we could realistically undertake to make our communities more accessible to all.”


What happens if you’re an older adult and have run out of resources? In today’s episode, Cathleen speaks to Carissa Elphick, the Director of Human Service Programs at Partnership for Public Health who also oversees ServiceLink offices for Belknap and Carroll County in New Hampshire.
