Welcome to York County Aging Services
York County Aging Services is dedicated to maintaining the independent lifestyle and the dignity of older adults in our communities. We work to develop and maintain a network of coordinated, community based services and activities. We strive to strengthen home and family living for persons 60 years and older and to foster full participation by elders in community life and opportunities.
York County Aging Services is jointly sponsored by County, State and Federal funds made available through the York County Board of Commissioners and Aging Partners. Contributions for services and donations also help to support the Program.
All activities and services of the York County Aging Services Program are provided without regard to race, color, creed, national origin or disability.

Care Management Service
This program's care manager is trained to help older people through difficult situations by providing a professional assessment
of need and through available resources, those involved can make wise decisions. Following the assessment,
the care manager will:
- Explain available services and all possible options
- Make arrangements and help plan how to make best use of community resources.
- Help make arrangements to get services started.
- Continue to work with the older person to make sure the plan is working
The fee for Care Management is based on the Client’s income.
This program will assist in arranging in-home services for older persons who may need help with: cleaning, cooking, laundry, shopping & errands, yard work, miner home repairs, snow removal, personal care tasks and respite care.
Match-ups are made with independent contractors in the community, or referrals made to appropriate agencies that provide the needed services. The costs for these services are paid by the older adult. Low income persons may qualify for assistance in paying for needed services.
