About Elder Services of Okaloosa County
Established in 1971 by a small group of dedicated volunteers, we are a licensed home healthcare agency based in Fort Walton Beach, Florida, offering elder home care assistance, respite care, personal care, assisted living facilities, and much more.
As a social service organization that has focused on the needs of the elderly and handicapped of Okaloosa County for over fifty years, we employ staff who understand the unique needs of our clients and demonstrate patience and compassion in assisting them to remain in the preferred setting of their homes.
Our office is open Monday through Friday from 8 AM to 4 PM, and we are happy to assist clients or answer any questions they may have.
The Elder Services of Okaloosa County Difference
We are here for all elderly or disabled individuals who need a little support. We take it as our duty to help and encourage them, showing that home care is possible with the proper assistance.
One aspect that makes us second to none is that our staff are faithful and dedicated to the agency’s mission of providing our elderly patients with a familiar face, friendly conversation, and a meaningful human connection, which can benefit overall health and well-being.
What sets us apart from the rest of our competitors is we are a private, non-profit organization and deliver exceptional care services at little to no cost. Similarly, our vast experience in caring for the dignity and independence of our clients and the fact we employ the most genuinely caring and supportive staff makes us the best choice for our clients and their loved ones.
One of our most significant achievements has been adopting the Community Care For The Elderly program in 2019. The program offers support with personal care, homemaking, companionship services, and respite.
Our dream for the future is to acquire the federally funded Older Americans Act program to further supplement our current programs by bringing more services into the homes of our elderly population and those in need.
While we are passionate about what we do, we also care about protecting the environment. To do what we can towards a better future, we recycle what we can and support green initiatives.
We also believe in giving back to society. As part of that belief, we are a part of the United Way local effort and work closely with other local non-profit organizations to make a difference.
