Needs survey A Helping Hand (AHH), a local nonprofit organization serving older adults, is conducting a study on our “most senior” seniors (those 85+ years of age) and the challenges they face in maintaining independence.
The survey will include individuals in this age group who are living independently, family or friends providing care and health care professionals who assist this population. You can participate by sharing your views in a face-to-face interview, a phone call or by responding online.
AHH has been serving older adults in the Triangle since 1995. The agency is committed to helping older adults remain as independent as possible for as long as possible. Fifty percent of the older adults served by A Helping Hand are 85+ years of age.
