SCSEP: Elder Job Training
The Senior Community Service Employment Program is a part-time, temporary job training program for eligible elders 55 and older. Subsidizing job training and building real world skills have been the keys to NICOA’s SCSEP success in Indian Country since 1989. Learn about the program, why it’s important, how to qualify, and what it can do for you.
Technical Assistance and Resource Center
This program provides outreach and education on the unique needs of Native elders and caregivers to Native elders, the Aging Network, and Native focused organizations and other diverse aging groups. We offer electronic and direct contact training modules for non-Native service providers on working with tribes and Native elders, as well as a downloadable toolkit for Native people of all ages living with disabilities.
Family Caregiving Needs in Diverse Older Communities
This program identifies and addresses the unique needs of family caregivers in Native communities. The program uses the “Caring For Those Who Care” toolkit, which facilitates the development of training and educational programming for healthcare and social service providers, policymakers and family caregivers.
Long Term Services and Supports
The Tribal Long Term Services and Supports National Resource Center, also known as the NICOA LTSS Compass, helps individuals and tribal leaders understand what LTSS (long-term services and supports) is and how it benefits the community and promotes independence, health, and quality of life for elders and people with disabilities. Our website empowers tribal communities to develop or expand LTSS for Native elders and people with disabilities in their local communities. You can use it to find services in your area as well as other long-term care resources.
