2024 Senior Resource Guide Updates

2024 Senior Resource Guide Updates

The Senior Resource Guide is periodically updated as the Senior Advisory Committee comes across new resources or services that may benefit the senior population.

The Victoria Senior Resource Guide was created to help Victoria residents maintain the highest quality of life possible by providing information on senior services, educational programming and other resources that support and promote the well-being of Victoria residents.

Within the Senior Resource Guide, senior residents can find information on services and programs relating to topics such as finance, caregiver resources, in-home assistance, health, housing, transportation, and more — all curated by the Senior Advisory Committee.

The 2024 Senior Resource Guide provides additional information and resources to benefit the senior population. A few of this year’s new additions are listed below.
