Elder Services

Gulf Coast JFCS is proud to partner with the Area Agency on Aging for Pasco-Pinellas Counties (AAAPP). As the lead agency for Pinellas County, we assist in coordinating care and connecting seniors to needed services. In addition to this partnership, we provide a host of support services outside of Pinellas County to help seniors live more fulfilling, independent lives in their own homes.
