WHO WE SERVE

Age Line is dedicated to serving seniors and those with disabilities on the west side of Cleveland.

Whether you are seeking the freedom associated with maintaining your independent living arrangement or are searching for a way to avoid the financial burden of a permanenct care facility, Age Line is here to help. Our clientele consists largely of seniors and those with disabilities--such as Alzheimers, Multiple Sclerosis, and Muscular Dystrophy.

At Age Line, it has long been our mission to help our clients cope with the impediments of old age and disability, with an emphasis on dignity, courtesy, and an abiding understanding of both the uniqueness of individual personalities, and the unifying thread of our common humanity. We recognize that each of our clients demands a different level of care. Some are visually impaired, and can no longer operate vehicles due to cataracts, glaucoma, or other degenerative eye diseases. Hesitant to trust the patience or honesty of random cab drivers, they call on Age Line's escorted transportation service to get them to and from the grocery store, beauty salon, or Age Line's Adult Activity Center.

Some of our clients face very serious challenges such as Alzheimers Disease, Multiple Sclerosis (MS), or Muscular Dystrophy (MD). They require intensive care, and our dedicated staff is highly trained to provide that care.

Our Age Line employees take great pains to make your time at Age Line both fun and rewarding.  Whether you have muscular dystrophy, multiple sclerosis, or are suffering from arthritis, our staff is here to  help you regain your sense of wonder by making you an integral part of our community. We firmly believe in the sacred nature of life, and that all people derserve to be treated with dignity--especially our elders.Others have been house-bound for years and merely wish to engage again socially with others. After all, one of the best ways to prevent the atrophy of the mind is to remain mentally active, and nothing keeps the mind active like community involvement. In fact, studies have proven beyond question that social engagement has the power to extend life, given its power to both stimulate mind and body. This also fosters in the individual a sense of self-worth and purpose. Since brain activity and social activity are--at least in a limited respect--functions of each other, professional caregivers must consider more than just food, shelter, and medication when tending to their clients. They must also consider their clients' hopes and dreams, and their need for meaningful human contact. At Age Line, we do just that.

A NOTE TO CAREGIVERS

If you are a caregiver searching for resources to help ease the stress of caregiving, we will be happy to help you care for your relative, whether that relative just needs escorted transportation services, or more dedicated medical care. We understand that in this day and age, children of the elderly and disabled often lead hectic lives just trying to make ends meet. It is an anomoly, rather than the norm, to have a spouse who isn't working, and there is limited time in the day to care for both your own children and an elderly or disabled relative. This is nothing to be ashamed of. It is merely a fact of life, and we would be happy to help you cope with it. If you find that your own health and finances are suffering as a result of the time you are currently dedicating to caregiving, please call us today. Finding competant help with caregiving will not only extend the length of time that you can afford to give care, the reduced anxiety you feel will fundamentally improve the quality of care that you do provide. You want to be happy; your loved ones want you to be happy; and we want you to be happy. So don't be too proud to admit that you need a helping hand, because that's just what we're offering, and we look forward to hearing from you.
