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.
