Program Description


“While many people think of older adults as retirees, the truth is millions of Americans aged 55 and over work full or part-time jobs every day. According to the National Council on Aging the reasons they work are varied, but for many it’s a matter of necessity to remain financially secure and independent.”

“Elders are an attractive target for scammers. Many own their home and have monthly checks and other valuable resources. Those at risk include: women, those who live alone, and Elders with physical disabilities or cognitive impairment.”

The National Indian Council On Aging helps American Indian and Alaska Native Elders with:

Preventing Financial exploitation – educates elders on financial abuse, scams, fraud, how to protect their valuables, and financial education and saving through the Your Money, Your Goals toolkit specific to Native communities.

Employment - find work and learn new skills and computer literacy through the Senior Community Service Employment Program a national on-the-job training and employment program so that they can be financially independent.

Healthcare - works with community service providers and aging organizations to represent and advocate for healthcare for American Indian and Alaska Native Elders.

The council also provides information on long-term care, caregiver services, senior housing, transportation, food, nutrition and other support services for older adults across the USA through tribalfootprints.org
