The OPC Senior Resource program offers you or someone you care about a place to find out about information and resources, available in the community, on all aspects of aging. We can connect you to the helpful programs and services if you or loved one is experiencing difficulties - physical, emotional, legal, or financial. Our Information Hallway, outside the Senior Resource offices, not only contains information on OPC’s services, but has answers to frequently asked questions, and brochures, to other valuable resources for seniors and their families.
