Meals delivered to senior citizens, tax preparation help, seminars on death and bereavement, and how to navigate Social Security and Medicare.  These are only a few of the many offerings from the Adams County Office for Aging that are making a difference for local seniors.

And the office has just rolled out a new Shared Housing And Resource Exchange (SHARE) program in which seniors who need housing are matched with people who have space to share in their homes.

The cooperative arrangements benefit both the seniors who are renting and the homeowner who receives rental income and helps a senior in need..

Anyone over 18 years of age can offer a share to someone over 60 years old, after backgrounds are checked on both sides.

In this episode SHARE Housing Counselor Valery Adams explains the program and how you can get involved.
