The Office on Aging serves as Idaho’s Area IV Agency on Aging, as well as south central Idaho’s Corporation for National and Community Services volunteer opportunities organization. We help seniors in the eight rural counties of south central Idaho, commonly referred to as the Magic Valley.
For the last 30 years, the CSI-Office on Aging has developed and coordinated such services as:
- Home Delivered Meals
- Information and Assistance
- Case Management
- Respite help for caregivers
- Homemaker Services
- Caregiver Services
- Job and Volunteer opportunities
- Transportation, and more to assist older persons.
From a start of five communities with meals for seniors, Magic Valley now has 18 communities where seniors can gather with friends and neighbors for nutritious meals.
Older people also have access to legal services, institutional ombudsman services, and adult protection investigation assistance for alleged abuse, neglect or exploitation.
We have support groups, which meet regularly for grandparents raising grandchildren, caregivers and recently widowed people.
As our population ages, as longevity increases and as funds become more static, we must seek ways to preserve efficient access to services, which help keep elders independent. We believe our website will help make information easier for you.
CSI provides special benefits for people over the age of 60, including the CSI “Gold Card.” This allows seniors to take any CSI accredited course for free, plus get a variety of other services at reduced rates. CSI also has a nationally recognized (and fun) exercise class for people 60 to 96, which is held at 10 locations.
