Outreach Assistance 

The Chatham Council on Aging Outreach Coordinators work with seniors in the Chatham community and their families to quickly identify issues and correctly refer their clients to the appropriate helping organizations. Our Outreach team embraces the ever-increasing complexity of outreach needs through ongoing training in order to meet the needs of the community. Identifying the elder care issues and learning how to address these issues helps us provide sophisticated, specialized services including caregiver support and education, long term care planning, crisis management, aging services information, and benefits assistance to better serve community members.
