Lucas County Senior Services Committee stops by to talk about their levy

Lucas County is experiencing unprecedented growth in its senior population (age 60+). In 2000, Lucas County had 76,180 seniors. In 2020, the number of Lucas County seniors is projected to reach 101,899. During the course of the projected next Senior Levy (2020-2024), the number of Lucas County seniors will reach 108,382. This is a renewal of the current Senior Services Levy for 0.60 mill, which expires on December 31, 2019, with a modest 0.15 mill increase. The annual cost to the owner of a $100,000 home will be $22.52. For an additional $4 a year, you can help seniors stay independent and live at home. The current Senior Levy serves more than: - 331,000 home-delivered meals, - 12,000 hours of home care, - 3,600 days of Alzheimer’s day care for seniors with Alzheimer’s Disease and dementia, - 6,000 units of chore services, and 38,000 transportation trips for seniors. The length of the Levy will be 5 years and will provide meals to home-bound Lucas County seniors, home care services to help seniors remain at home, services for persons with Alzheimer’s disease and their family caregivers and more.
