Abstract (Summary)

Many different organizations and service providers in Long Beach provide services and care to older adults. Since the majority of these organizations operate independently, they tend to use separate resource guides to assist clients with finding appropriate referrals to services that they do not directly provide. The Long Beach Senior Center (LBSC), which will become the “Long Beach Office on Aging” in an attempt to unify and coordinate organizations throughout Long Beach, currently uses an outdated resource guide last updated in 2005. This project updated the resource guide for the Long Beach Office on Aging as an internet-based resource that can be easily updated and shared with organizations and service providers throughout Long Beach. Previous resources were contacted and updated through phone calls, emails, or personal visits by the project director. Meetings between various organizations and representatives from the Long Beach Office on Aging will continue to unify the network of support services to serve older adults in Long Beach.
