Senior assistance programs

Post by Smith » Fri Nov 05, 2010 12:58 am

I am requesting information regarding my senior citizen, elderly parents. Both parents are in there mid 70's and live on a fixed income, the home is heated by propane and the cost per month is almost half of their income they get as seniors from their pension and social security... They struggle to pay the propane bill during the winter, are there any programs that will help in San Juan County? (Farmington, NM 87401)Any information would be greatly appreciated...

Is Farmington in San Juan? If so, here is some details on places to turn to for help with propane, heating bills, and other aid. There are options like the San Juan County Partnership, and other utility and energy programs such as Farmington Electric Utility System. The programs are usually open to apply to in the winter, but sometimes aid is offered throuhout the year as well. They are defintely worth looking into in the New Mexico area.

My husband was just diagnoses with stage three systolic/diastolic heart failure on 7/14. He was hospitalized for fourteen days They say it was from a virus not vascular. We are behind on all our bills and exhausted most local organizations. He wears a life vest due to sudden cardiac death and I am concerned about my electricity bill and the shut off notice We pay $97 for our premium for Minnesota Care and $3 a visit and prescription. He is now on a strict diet fresh fruits and vegetables. We go to have the talk about the need for more care in August but are in the protocol phase to see if medications help. They are unable to increase his heart medications to the ideal level due to his low blood pressure. I don't know what to do I need financial help. My car is clanking when it shifts gears. We live about 40 miles one way from the cardiac/heart failure unit He is only 62 years old, nondrinker. I am working full time at a computer company. We are in financial distress along with emotional duress. Please email me. My cell phone is also due to be shut and it my only contact to his doctors. Please help me or find someone that can I am begging you. We have been married a long time and if I can take his worry over these things he can focus on trying to heal and live while he is trying to live. I cant save him and its devastating to me.

To whom it may concern:
Good day. I am writing this as a concerned friend. He is a senior citizen a GODLYMAN that needs help and assistance. I saw online about the various government assistance about Adults senior that offers job aid for 55 years old and above, health care for people without money and insurance as well as free legal assistance.
The following are the details of my prayers and plea:
Age: 67, with a wife and 3 grand kids.
Location: In Georgia, Walton County
1. Medical & pharmaceutical - He has totally nothing to pay for his health issues nor to buy medicines. He has heart, nose, eyes and arthritis issues. Always dizzy almost fainting, vomiting and most of the time in pain.
2. He needs a job. He has been constantly applying for a job but no luck. I firmly believe if given the chance it will keep him busy gives him relief from stress, worries & anxiety thus will give him good health and help him in his financial needs.
Has a degree in Nursing. Hobbies are a wedding planner. He is somehow a writer for blogs, has a good voice like a newscaster. Intelligent, smart, well rounded, easy to get along with & not to mention result/goal oriented person that can work with minimum supervision or no supervision at all.
3. Legal aid. Injustice .
With all this said I'm sure you understand why I'm so worried about this person since he is all alone and nobody to help.
We all have our own test of FAITH in this life and that is where Christianity and love for one another comes in.
God Bless and More Power. My heartfelt gratitude in advance.

Yes, there are job programs, resources for people over the age of 55, and seniors in general. Look into SCSEP and other programs, and try an Agency on Aging center as well. As far as the legal aid, that tends to be more dependent on income vs. age, but it sounds like they may still qualify. Find more details on assistance programs for senior citizens.

Brand New to the area and my fiance leaves us so now I'm a Single. I am a senior mother who needs to apply for assistance with food, shelter, insurance for my children and myself as well, if possible. My children and I are currently staying with a friend but it's very temporary. We don't even have a vehicle anymore. I do plan on working but like I said, I just got here and everything fell apart, and it is hard for someone to hire a senior.
