Senior Citizen Resources

This section contains information that Bower Hill members have assembled and organized related to Senior Citizens. The Area Agency on Aging is an office of the Allegheny County Department of Human Services. This Agency has the most comprehensive information on resources for seniors. While most of the links below deal with their web site, we have added other resources. While most of the links give information that is useful for all Allegheny County residents, we have added links specifically for Pittsburgh South Hills residents.
