One-on-One Assistance

Wellington is pleased to provide one-on-one assistance with one of our trained specialists, which aims to connect seniors and caregivers with the resources and services they need. Our specialists are great listeners, and are concerned about your well-being.

With one-on-one assistance, we are able to provide analysis such as the "Benefits Check-Up" through the National Council on Aging, to see what services you may be eligible to receive, and to help connect you with agencies that may be able to assist with your specific needs.

Please contact Community Services Specialist, Jenifer Brito at (561) 753-2476 or email at jbrito@wellingtonfl.gov.

 

Monthly Senior Symposiums

Educational opportunities on a variety of subjects are available to our seniors every month. Senior Symposiums allow us to reach our older adult community, and provide them information on important topics. These FREE educational sessions are delivered in a "lunch and learn" format, and are open to our residents and their caregivers.

Preregistration is required! Please contact Community Services Specialist, Jenifer Brito at (561)753-2476 or email at jbrito@wellingtonfl.gov.

 

Home Inspections

Recent studies concluded that the majority of Wellington Seniors, and those nearing senior status, desire to "age in place" or continue to live in the homes and apartments they currently occupy. "Aging in Place" describes a senior homeowner, or physically disabled individual's ability to remain comfortably and safely in their home.

Wellington offers home inspections to provide residents with information, to plan and help implement home modifications that promote safety, mobility, security, and continued functional use.

 

Home Rehabilitation Program

The Village of Wellington offers a Home Repair Program to income eligible homeowners. This program allows for eligible residents to receive up to $15,000 toward qualified improvements. Funding is limited to urgent repairs, accessibility improvements, energy efficiency improvements, and health and safety issues. Assistance is provided as a 5-year forgivable loan, at zero percent interest. 

Contact Community Development Strategist, Jim Fackrell at (561) 753-2435 for more information.
