By and large, it is the lack of
knowledge/information that is
responsible for unsuccessful
aging. Our agency and Serving
Our Seniors Magazine exists to
counter-act that phenomenon.
If you have a question or if you
are confronted with an issue that
is problematic for you in later life, please call us at
419-624-1856 or 800-564-1856. Ask to speak with a
Senior Advocate Assistant. We are here to advocate
for your ability to maintain your independence –
regardless of your income.

From the
Aging is a complicated business. That is why in
1996 a group of senior citizen activists founded
Serving Our Seniors. They wanted one place to call
when a resident of Erie County, age 60 or better,
had a question/problem/concern. High, middle or
low income – all could be empowered with accurate
information and an advocate who would help them
resolve their question or concern.
The ultimate goal is that people of older age are
taken as seriously and given the same respect as
young and middle-aged adults. Until our culture
changes, Erie County senior citizens have a place to
turn to, with an advocate who will help to address the
senior citizen’s issue.

Do not regret growing older. It is a privilege
denied to many.

One morning a grandma woke up
completely surprised that her 7 year old
grandson had made her coffee. She smiled
as she choked down the worst tasting
coffee she had ever had in her life.
When she fnished she found 3 green
plastic Army men at the bottom of her cup.
She asked him, “Honey, what are these
Army men doing in my cup?”
Her grandson answered - “Like it says on
T.V. Grandma, the best part of waking up is
soldiers in your cup!!”
