Additionally, UPMC Senior Services provides state-of-the-art training and education to professionals specific to the concerns of the aging population.

From in-home caregivers to hospital clinicians and front-line staff, UPMC Senior Services continues to educate audiences on the physical, mental, and social challenges faced by older adults. UPMC Senior Services offers extensive educational training programs, community outreach, literature, videos, and simulations aimed at increasing awareness and improving the direct care and treatment of aging adults — today and tomorrow.
Too often, seniors and their caregivers are isolated by the stress of the challenges they face and unaware of the resources available. Bridging that gap is a key objective of UPMC Senior Services. Through our outreach, we are building awareness and empowering older adults, families, and caregivers through informed decision making and access to needed support.
Our free help and referral line help older adults, caregivers, family members, and neighbors find the resources they need.
