Welcome! This page is designed to bring you information on senior services in Lake County and provide information on the Lake County Senior Levy. If you would like additional information or have questions, please contact Alyea Barajas, Senior Services Coordinator, at (440) 350-2748 or [email protected].

Lake County’s Senior Levy was first approved by voters in November, 1992. In November 2017, voters approved a levy renewal and increase resulting in a total levy collection of 0.8 mills for five years. Levy funding is reserved for providing or maintaining senior citizen services or facilities and is authorized by sections 307.694, 307.85 and 5705.19 of the Ohio Revised Code. 

In 2012, the Lake County Board of Commissioners established the Lake County Senior Citizens Advisory Panel.  The purpose of the Panel is to serve as an advisory and recommending body to the Commissioners and to facilitate equitable and beneficial allocation and distribution of the levy funds. 

Levy funds are distributed to 15 different senior services agencies in Lake County and help fund programs such as senior center activities, congregate meals, home-delivered meals, non-medical home health care services, Adult Protective Services, volunteer guardian services, volunteer opportunities, social work services, and more.  

In October 2014, the Lake County Senior Citizens Advisory Panel recommended initiation of a senior study in an effort to get a better handle on the seniors in Lake County and the gaps in senior services, as well as create a blueprint for the future.  In October 2015, the study, titled Lake County, Ohio Senior Citizens: Today, Tomorrow and in the Future was completed, the results of which can be found here:
