Resources for Seniors in Denton County

Geri-Options geriatric care managers are very knowledgeable about resources available to seniors and will assist our clients in locating the specific services to meet individual needs and circumstances. It is no easy task to stay on top of the complex, ever-changing and ever-growing number of services and resources to assist our seniors and their families as they experience challenges related to health, cognitive and aging issues.

We offer this list of resources as a service to our community. It is by no means a complete listing and does not include the many home health agencies, hospice services, assisted living communities, residential care homes, durable medical equipment companies and caregiving agencies that are available to help. Once we know your specific circumstances, we can work with you to provide the best care plan possible and guide you to the services that best meet your needs.
