Are you and your pharmacy patients familiar with the services offered by the Alabama Department of Senior Services (ADSS)?
ADSS's mission statement is, "To promote the independence and dignity of those we serve through a comprehensive and coordinated system of quality services." In service of that mission, ADSS has released a "Guide To Services" booklet that describes the range of services and resources available to assist older adults.
Many older adults are unaware of the state-level programs and resources available to them. By staying informed, you can direct your patients to services that may benefit them.
You can find the guidebook at the following link: (https://alabamaageline.gov/wp-content/uploads/2023/06/Guide-To-Services-2023.pdf)
