About Us

Concerned senior citizens, along with the Hancock County Council on Aging, the Central Indiana Council on Aging, and the Interlocal Community Action Program, saw a need and were willing to devote time, funds, and creativity to see that a senior service organization was developed to meet those needs.

Established in 1978, Hancock County Senior Services provides in-home, non-medical support services to persons over the age of 60, to those with disabilities of any age, and particularly to low-income residents.

In 2005, Hancock Area Rural Transit expanded the Senior Services Transportation Program to serve county residents who are under 60 years of age. See the Services page for transportation details.

HCSS provided assistance to 810 county residents through one or more programs during the past year. The following services were provided to the seniors and disabled of Hancock County during 2017:

22,568  One-way transportation trips
2,919   Homemaker hours
31   Handyman hours
693   Volunteer service hours
136   Telephone reassurance calls
162   Outreach hours
1971   Respite assistant care hours
48,999   Information and referral contacts
