Aging Resources should be the first call you make.

Many people call 7-8 numbers before getting answers to their questions.

We pride ourselves in helping our clients the first and every time!

Our Information & Assistance (I&A) Specialists listen to you and share ideas about programs or agencies that might address your concerns. They can assist you in getting connected to available services and to answer the many questions that you have about aging or living with a disability.  Whether you have questions about housing or transportation; programs or services to help you stay in your home; or you are just wondering what types of assistance is available to you, make your first call to Aging Resources.

If you are an adult 60+ years of age or a person with a disability who is 18+ years of age, contact an I&A Specialist with any of your questions. Call Aging Resources at (515) 255-1310 or (800) 747-5352.  Emails are welcomed at

Each contact, phone call, or face-to-face interview is intended to answer your questions so you can remain in your home and be as independent as possible.

If you are needing additional support in arranging services, managing those services or finding employment, Aging Resources has several other programs that might be of interest to you.

Options Counseling

After discussing your situation with an Information and Assistance Specialist, depending on your needs, you may also want to pursue Options Counseling. This program is a chance to look at all services that may be of interest to you. An Options Counselor talks with you about possible programs, and if you desire to apply for some programs, the counselor can help you with those applications or establishing services.  All options are written down and provided to you.  This interactive planning process helps you identify long-term support preferences and to develop an individualized plan.

Call Aging Resources and ask to speak with one of our Options Counselors.

Case Management

If you are a person 60+ years of age and need help managing multiple services, our Case Management Program might be appropriate for you.  This service provides a case manager that  actually assesses your situation in your home, discusses possible programs, establishes no fee, sliding fee and private pay services to address your needs. Monthly contact is made to ensure your services are helping and your needs are being met.

If you have on-going needs, Case Management might be helpful to you.  Call Aging Resources to discuss this service.

Older Worker Employment Program

If you are an individual 55+ years of age and older with any type of disability and looking for employment, our Older Worker Employment Program might be just what you are seeking.  Our Older Worker Employment Specialist works with Iowa Vocational Rehabilitation in supporting clients to create resumes, to improve interviewing techniques and to locate possible employment opportunities.  Every client must qualify to work with Iowa Vocational Rehabilitation, but our Specialist can explain the process and connect you.
