Organizing the needs and finances for our loved ones, family members, or our own retirement can be overwhelming. The good news is that there are many helpful organizations specializing in senior issues.
Below is a list of 23 organizations dedicated to the needs of seniors — and it’s just the beginning. While many of these national organizations can refer you to agencies and businesses in your local community, you may also find useful information by searching “senior centers” for your city or town online, or in the telephone book.
