The Gatekeeper Program is designed to help at-risk older adults and persons with disabilities learn about resources and support that can help them stay as independent and healthy as possible. This may include medical care, food assistance or delivery, help with money management, transportation and other services.
Who are Gatekeepers?
Gatekeepers are people who come in to contact with at-risk older adults and persons with disabilities through their everyday work or day-to-day activities. People like meter readers, bank tellers, letter carriers, pharmacists, newspaper deliverers, neighbors, friends, or family members — the list is virtually endless.
