The Eldercare Locator is a nationwide, toll-free assistance directory sponsored by the Administration on Aging and helps older adults and caregivers find local services and resources. The Locator is particularly useful if a person is trying to provide care from a distance and doesn't know what services are available in another community.
The number for the Eldercare Locator Service is 1-800-677-1116. The service operates from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m., EST, Monday through Friday. Also visit their website at www.eldercare.gov
