Senior Aides 

The Senior Aides program provides part-time employment for eligible older persons with limited income. In order to be eligible to work as a Senior Aide, a person must be age 55 or older with limited financial means as well as being competent both mentally and physically for work or community service activities. Sponsors include both local government units and non-profit organizations.

Currently, there are 75 Senior Aides in the five county service area. The Senior Aides program is funded by both Senior Service America and the Alabama Department of Senior Services, while each host agency provides a match of $1000 per aide. Typically, a Senior Aide works two years at each host agency, however, they can participate in the program as long as the meet the eligibility requirements. 

The NACOLG Senior Aide program recently received national attention as it was highlighted in a publication issued by the Department of Public Affairs as a "success story" of the Title V grant program.
