Living and growing old in Little Rock is the goal for so many men, women and families. But with living comes learning, and sometimes we are faced with obstacles that can throw a wrench in even the most well-thought-out plan. Whether for ourselves or someone close to us, growing older presents its own set of challenges that aren’t always met with open arms or knowledge.
At CareLink, we’ve been working with friends, families and older people to navigate this part of their journey to help them age comfortably, happily and safely in their homes since 1979. As Central Arkansas’ Area Agency on Aging, our mission is to connect older people and their families with resources to meet the opportunities and challenges of aging. While many people know us for our Meals on Wheels program, we provide a host of services that supports seniors’ efforts to live out their best days in their own homes and communities. Serving a six-county region, we provide those services directly or indirectly through a network of providers, or by sharing information for organizations who can meet a person’s needs where they are in life.
Located in Central Arkansas, we deliver meals from our Community Kitchen in North Little Rock, provide in-home care, socialization through telephone reassurance, fitness and wellness classes through local senior centers, family caregiver support, and other resources through information and assistance.
At CareLink, we will listen to the needs of Central Arkansas’ aging community, assess the best way to serve them — either through CareLink or through other resources or connections — and then work with the community member and families to provide the quality care and assistance needed to make growing older a joyous part of life.
