I frequently turn to Pathlights for invaluable advice and information on how to help older adults navigate housing, health care and all questions related to living life in our area. The warm, knowledgeable and accessible staff at Pathlights have taught us so much about how to help our community of older adults age in place, receive the benefits they need and stay socially connected with joy and dignity. We love our partnership with Pathlights.
