Council on aging releases list of resources

HANCOCK COUNTY — One out of three Americans age 65 and older is economically insecure and lacking resources to meet basic food, housing and medical needs, according to the Central Indiana Council on Aging.

CICOA Aging In-Home-Solutions, 4755 Kingsway Drive, Suite 200, Indianapolis, 800-432-2422.
