The City of Tempe offers services and involvement opportunities for residents and community members of all ages. Specific programs and partnerships are available for Adults 50+ and include health and wellness resources, recreational and social activities, volunteer and continued learning opportunities and more. As a member of the Tempe Community for the last 10 Years John Skelton has learned many things about the ins and outs of Tempe City Services. The services are great, getting the world out has been the hard part. This article aims of show Tempe Residents how to access services and get what they already pay for via local taxes.

Senior Helpers of Tempe
Some city services just fall short and that's where paid services come in.
The first step in the process is a complimentary, initial in-home care assessment with a Senior Helpers consultant. This assessment can help you understand the true needs of your loved one, and your options. Together we can discuss their needs, our senior care services and determine what’s best for your entire family. We will cover:
- Your family's specific goals
- Your loved one's daily plan design and schedule
- Pricing and payment methods
- Implementation process
- Ongoing communication and follow-up plan
