Senior Citizens Council of Clackamas County provides an invaluable service to the community. They regularly step up to manage the care-giving and financial needs of vulnerable seniors and people with disabilities who have no family members or friends available to serve. I have worked with SCC for years, and have admired their willingness and ability to jump into difficult situations to stabilize and improve the lives of vulnerable Oregonians. They protect their clients from financial abuse/exploitation, connect them with necessary services, and ensure that their medical and care needs are met. They do hard work that would otherwise go undone, and in the process, they avoid an untold amount of human suffering. Clackamas County is very fortunate to have them.

I have worked with the staff at the Clackamas County Senior Citizens Council for nearly 5 years (One of their clients lives in my Adult Care facility). They have been outstanding to work with! Christina, Louise, and Franki are patient, compassionate,caring and easily accessible when I need to reach them. We have a great team relationship, and I look forward to many more years of working in partnership. I would highly recommend them to anyone in need of their services. I cannot thank them enough!

One of the mental health clients who lives in my Adult Care facility has guardianship through the Senior Citizens' Council. I have been greatly impressed with the kindness, patience, courtesy and professionalism that Christina, Louise, and Franki have shown (both to my client, and to my ACH staff)! They are available (even on weekends), and prompt in their response to requests' for information, as well as call-backs. Each month, Franki meets with my client, and she is always interested in his progress. I have spoken with Christina and Louise also, asking for advice; they have been very helpful to me! It is my sincere hope that we will continue to maintain our excellent working relationship in the years to come! I hope that we may receive further clients through Senior Citizen's Council! In short, they are fantastic! I cannot say enough good things about them! Please keep them in mind as they are outstanding! Thank You! Tim Moore (Basil ACH LLC in Tigard)

I have worked with Senior Citizens Council for over 10-years. I am an Administrator of a Memory Care Community. The benifits of this organization is huge. They help in so many areas such as conservator ships, guardianships, etc. I have seen productive, smart, wonderful people riddled with disease and families/friends could no longer care for their loved ones and when Senior Citizens Council stepped in it gave hope to these people. A purpose to continue with life. A "family" to turn to in a time of need. Senior Citizens Council is also benefitial for those of us in the community lending us support. Always knowing where to send us if they cannot help. Senior Citizens Council truly makes a difference in every life they come in contact with.

I am a client of Clackamas Senior Citizens Council and have been for three years. I suffer from Bi-Polar disorder which makes handling my finances a very stressful component of my illness. Though Senior Citizens Council I have had much reduced stress as they take care of all issues regarding my finances including dealing with creditors, setting up payment arrangements and day to day running of my finances. I don't know where I would be today without their help. It could be as bad as homeless.

This service has provided our family with great guidance for the care of my sister, Anne Schneider. She is in a home with outstanding care. The Senior Council sold all her property and has manage her finances thru the whole process. They have been a relief to us at every turn. Thank you for all you have done. Bob Graham

I found Senior Citizens Council of Clackamas County by pure luck. My mother had suffered a series of small stroaks which involved several health complications. After becoming widowed, she was on a very limited income and had no skills of managing her money or monthly bills. The health issues combined with the unmagability of her finances were too much for me to handle alone.

The Senior Citizen Coucil has helped get my mom back on track while allowing her to keep her home. They have worked long and hard to get her monthly payments lowered, additional assistance in areas needed and they communicated with me every step of the way.

They truly have my mothers best interest at heart and I feel blessed to have her in their program.
