Older Americans Deserve to Live with Dignity

Do you know how Older Americans Act funding supports older Americans? It helps our seniors in so many ways, from providing nutritious meals to home modifications that enable elders to age in place, and is both effective and cost efficient.

Let's support our elders by working to increase this funding, not decrease it! To advocate for funding that supports elders and their caregivers, contact your legislators.

LifePath is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization

We are LifePath

At LifePath, we listen first, and then help each person find the best options for their unique needs. We help elders and persons with disabilities maintain independence and quality of life in their own homes and communities. We help busy caregivers to find relief and help loved ones to choose the right path.

As we have been for over 40 years, we'll be there offering options for independence.
