Program Description


“Native American Elders have many of the same needs as other elder populations; however services to address these needs remain unavailable, underdeveloped or inaccessible in most Native American communities."

“Providing high-quality services, while maintaining the individual's cultural values, will enhance the Elders' self-perception, worth and dignity.”
