Benevolent Care Fund and Community Outreach

At UPMC Senior Services, we are committed to providing the highest quality of care possible for older adults — regardless of their ability to pay.

This includes our Benevolent Care Program for eligible seniors living in one of our 17 senior retirement communities who are depleting their financial resources as well as a variety of critical community outreach programs for eligible seniors living in their own home.
