An important message for our Older Adults and their Caregivers

portrait of Tracey MasonAt DSAS, our staff has been working diligently to adapt the way we are serving our clients in light of the Coronavirus pandemic. While we are implementing the protective measures recommended by the CDC, we will be connecting with clients in a different manner, but still committed to ensuring their physical and mental well-being.

As circumstances continue to evolve related to the COVID-19 pandemic, Cuyahoga County continues to review our operations, find ways to encourage social distancing and reduce the number of people entering our buildings. Current and potential clients are encouraged to access benefits and services online or by phone, as our buildings are currently closed to the public.

For information about any of our programs or services, call our Centralized Intake line: 216-420-6700. We are still taking referrals and making emergency face-to-face visits for both Adult Protective Services investigations and clients in our Options for Independent Living and Home Support Programs. All other visits are being conducted via conference calls until further notice.

Elder abuse referrals can be made to our Adult Protective Services unit 24-hours a day at 216-420-6700 or online via our referral web portal.

Many of our Senior Center partners are still serving clients in a modified capacity. Please visit our Community Social Services Program page for a list of senior centers in Cuyahoga County and the modified services they are providing.
