Gateway Seniors Announces the Online Version of the Senior Yellow Pages
Need helpful resources for yourself? a family member? a client? The Senior Yellow Pages, Local and State Services for Seniors in Greater Bangor is now online at
to educate seniors, their families, and those who work with seniors about the pertinent resources in our community. It is free of charge to everyone who wishes to use it.
Using the online version is easy. You locate material by clicking on the category name of the services of interest or by entering key words or phrases. Among the more than 80 categories covered are Abuse and Fraud; Bill Paying, Budgeting, Money Management; Companionship; Consumer Issues; Dementia Care; Educational Opportunities; Eye Care; Food and Meals Programs; Funeral Arrangements; Geriatric Services; Housing for Seniors; Long-Term Health Care and Insurance; Nursing Homes; Organizing Services; and Sleep Problems. Each service entry contains contact information such as phone numbers and addresses, as well as links to the service website, and maps and directions to locate the service. The online version also contains discussions of complex topics such as Palliative care, Home Health Care, and Legal Resources.
Many people and organizations contributed to this comprehensive guide to senior services. The manual was developed by Gateway Seniors Without Walls. Staff and social work students at the Center on Aging, University of Maine, Orono, helped gather information from the beginning. Community agencies working on the MOOV Penobscot Thriving in Place Grant, led by Dyan Walsh, the Executive Director of the Eastern Area Agency on Agency, were also instrumental. Health students at the University of Maine, Orono, played a role in getting the project off the ground.
If you use the online version, please let Gateway Seniors know about corrections and omissions. We’d also like to know if the online version is useful to you. A few hard copies of the Senior Yellow Pages may still be available by calling a library near you.
Gateway Seniors Without Walls, an affiliate of the Center on Aging, University of Maine, schedules meaningful, diverse, and daily activities in greater Bangor, especially Orono, Old Town, and Veazie. Everyone is welcome. There are no membership fees; no geographical or age requirements. We partner with many groups that serve older people to provide activities. In December 2016 and January and February 2017, roughly 90 activities are scheduled. For a copy of our Monthly Activity Schedule, which appears every month in the Penobscot Times and on our website, for additional information about the Senior Yellow Pages, or to volunteer to help us out, call Gateway Seniors (207) 889-3031, look on our website
