Healthy Aging & Caregiving Services

Supporting the health and independence of adults to age and be cared for in community


Wilder is committed to improving the lives of individuals to age in place and live where they feel most comfortable, whether in their own home or connected to their community. Seniors, older adults, adults with mental, physical and chronic health conditions and their caregivers have access to a variety of healthy aging and caregiving services, support and resources. Our goal is to support the health and independence of diverse adults to age and care in community. (See our commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion at Wilder.)
