Passages Programs

Help with Services for Older Adults

Passages’ Information and Assistance program provides information about and access to community services, including housing, food and meals, legal help, and low-income programs.

Care Management

Passages’ Multi-Purpose Senior Services program coordinates the care of people who, because of age, illness or disability, have difficulty arranging and managing services on their own. The goal is to foster independent living in the community.

Advocating for People in Long-Term Care

Passages’ Long-Term Care Ombudsman program helps advocate for, protect the rights of, and preserve the dignity of people living in nursing homes and residential care facilities.

Medicare Counseling

Passages’ Health Insurance Counseling and Advocacy Program (HICAP) helps Medicare beneficiaries understand Medicare; find options for health care insurance coverage, including prescription drug plans; learn about long-term care insurance options; apply for low-income healthcare programs; report fraud; and resolve insurance problems.

Volunteering Opportunities

Passages’ Volunteer Community Services program offers opportunities for adults to volunteer, including serving children in schools as a Foster Grandparent and assisting older adults as a Senior Companion and peer counselor.

Counseling and Support

Passages’ Connections program provides mental health screening, counseling, peer support, and both community and professional mental health education for adults age 60 and older living in Butte County.
