Resources for Seniors

Manatee County Senior Services

Specially trained volunteers can assist you with your Medicare, Medicaid, and health insurance questions by providing one-on-one counseling and information.

Senior Connection Center
Senior Connection Center is a private, nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization. Our mission is to help older adults and persons with disabilities live with independence and dignity. We achieve this by connecting seniors and their caregivers to the community resources, programs and services they need. Lately, we have found that some people want to give us a nickname – Senior Connection.
