The Leading Service Provider for Senior Programs in Brunswick County NC
As you consider all the many ways you might contribute to BSRI and support programming that directly benefits seniors in Brunswick County, please remember that grant funding sources and governmental support are limited. Therefore, your assistance toward maintaining productive senior lifestyles and health related benefits are vital to "making a difference."
BSRI programs suit a variety of needs seniors may encounter during life changes. Services offered through BSRI allow participants to remain in their home environment when challenges occur. Home bound seniors may qualify for a lunch time meal delivered each weekday. Caregivers may qualify for Respite benefits which allow them to take a break from their caregiving responsibilities. In-Home Aide options are available for qualifying clients (waiting list may apply).
Seniors lacking independent means of travel who desire to participate in the Senior Center activities and events may qualify for daily transportation. BSRI contracts with Brunswick Transit System (BTS) for general transportation to and from local centers. Shopping and financial related business transportation is offered on a semi-monthly basis. Please contact Brunswick Transit System directly for medical transportation needs at 910-253-7800.
