Navigation Program

• Navigation Program - SCIRC has created an online, interactive, automated data base of all services and providers, specific to Indian River County, with detailed information on each. The searchable database is available through our website https://www.SeniorServicesirc.org. In addition to the database we also provide information to seniors their family members or caregivers at no charge by phone. We assess need and make referrals to appropriate providers and services. Information provided on the data base and by phone includes both non-profit and for-profit entities. The future goal of this program is to provide a Connection Center for Indian River County seniors to be able to obtain information in person through an on-site counselor as well as a library of provider information. This center will also be able to provide seminars and education from the Collaborative's members.

Population(s) Served
Seniors

Senior Collaborative serves as the lead agency for Indian River County's Age Friendly designation. Livable Indian River in February of 2020 launched a five year process to make the county more livable for senior residents. This process includes an assessment of eight domains: Housing, Health, Transportation, Employment, Outdoor Spaces, Civic Inclusion, Social Inclusion and Communications. Upon completion of the assessment an action plan will be developed. Livable Indian River will be responsible to advocate for change provided by the action plan with the County. Although some proposed changes will be beneficial for all residents, it is anticipated that many will assist older individuals. Changes proposed in other Livable Communities have included improved cross walks, better street lighting, park improvements and providing for home modifications to allow for aging in place, just to name a few.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our mission is to improve the quality of life for all seniors in Indian River County.

We are providing a means to link seniors, family members and caregivers to available services, both non-profit and for profit at no cost to the client. All community assessments from 2012 to currently have had comments that seniors do not know what resources are available or how to access them.

Our organization is also the lead agency for Indian River County's age friendly designation. This program is a rolling five year program to assess needs of older adults, create an action plan and then advocate for change.

We are part of the AARP Livable Community program that is designed to help seniors age in place. We are providing current referral information that allows individuals to better age in place including information on health & medical, housing, transportation, recreation, community & government agencies, food & meals, financial assistance, education & employment.

We have created a website database to provide information on line. We also provide telephone assessment and referral services. We are currently planning to create a connection center that will provide information in person as well as seminar and educational programs.

Livable Indian River began it's first five year process in February 2020 and is in the assessment phase of the program. The website/database launched in August of 2020 and the telephone assessment and referral launched in December of 2020. We are currently doing marketing and outreach for the website and telephone services, to create awareness for the navigation program.
