Help with Forms

Even when we find services or programs that may help us or our loved ones, it can be overwhelming to fill out and submit the necessary forms and supporting documents. This is especially true for those who do not feel comfortable using computers, have vision or other impairments, or for whom English is not their first language. Here are some places older adults may be able to get help completing applications and other paperwork.
