ACC Senior Services was established in 1972 to provide programs for underserved older adults in the Sacramento region. Through the years, our vision evolved to create an array of services that help older adults sustain their independence and lifestyles. 

ACC opened a Community Senior Center in 2002, offering a Lifelong Learning and Wellness Program. Each week we hold 50-75 class sessions, club meetings, and workshops. More than 1,200 individuals participate in our computer, tai chi, yoga, line dancing, fitness, arts & crafts, and other classes and workshops annually. The workshops are presented by collaborating agencies such as: Alzheimer's Association, Yolo Hospice, Legal Services of Northern California, etc. on topics important to seniors and community members. 

ACC Rides Transportation Services (2003) provides 4,000 rides monthly for home-bound seniors in 13 zip code areas throughout Sacramento, some towns in the Delta region and to and from parts of Laguna/Elk Grove.  We provide door-thru-door service, utilizing both paid and volunteer drivers.  ACC Rides drivers provide "so much more than just a ride" by becoming extended family to many of our participants.  We have provided wellness checks during disasters, fans during heat waves, resources for food-insecure participants, program referrals for home repair needs and even a gift at the holidays. 

Our Utilities Education & Advocacy Program TEAM & CHANGES helps people understand their phone and PG&E bills; we also advocate for reimbursements and changed services for clients.  Personalized meetings determine what programs of subsidies an individual may be eligible for, guidance on how to apply and resources for other discounted programs.

The ACC Care Center (1987) is a 99-bed skilled nursing and rehabilitation facility in a multicultural and multilingual setting.  Serving hundreds of older adults per year, ACC Care Center has been recognized by US News & Review as well as remains a first choice among community members when needing short-term rehabilitation and long-term skilled nursing services.  ACC Care Center offers the "comforts of home, with the care of family". 

ACC Greenhaven Terrace, only a short walk from the senior center, features 146 Independent Living Senior apartments for persons 62+. In 2014, ACC added a 24-apartment Assisted Living community to allow residents who needed more supportive services, to remain in the community they call home. 

In 2019, ACC built ACC Maple Tree Village, a 99-apartment Assisted Living and Memory Care community just off of Pocket Road.  The community features 69 private apartments offering traditional Assisted Living services, and 30 private apartments are designated for those diagnosed with different forms of dementia.  ACC Maple Tree Village completed the continuum of care for ACC Senior Services.

Bridge to Healthy Families Caregiver Support programs (2009) supports and sustains the efforts of family caregivers, many of whom care for elders with Alzheimer's and other dementias, physical disabilities, and are at risk of institutionalization, by providing home visits for care assessments and care management, coaching, and support groups. 

ACC is partners in Sacramento County's ADRC (The Aging and Disability Resource Connection) Program.  ADRC's purpose is to provide a single more coordinated system for people seeking reliable information and access to Long-Term Services and Supports (LTSS). This purpose is achieved by building community partnerships, providing services using a person-centered approach, and reducing the number of barriers for accessing services.

Our newest programs are Sacramento's PEARLS (Program to Encourage Active, Rewarding Lives).  PEARLS is a treatment program designed to reduce symptoms of depression and improve quality of life among older adults.  The program consists of six to eight in-home counseling sessions that focus on the following goals: Solving problems, Becoming socially and physically active, Scheduling enjoyable activities.

Senior Community Services Employment Program (SCSEP) program places low-income seniors with barriers to employment in non-profits and government agencies to gain new skills while providing community service. The goal is to help the seniors find regular employment to help supplement retirement income. At ACC, we have hired many of the program's participants and many more have been hired by their host agency or other organizations.

We thank you for considering making a gift to ACC Senior Services on this Big Day of Giving and furthering our mission to serve seniors and their family caregivers.

Mission

ACC Senior Services promotes our community's general welfare and enhanced quality of life by identifying, developing, and providing culturally sensitive health and social services for older adults.

Needs

Our greatest need is to keep our community, especially our low-income clients, engaged and connected. Many of our clients are homebound to begin with due to mobility issues or a lack of transportation. The pandemic increasingly isolated our at-risk community, increasing depression rates and causing some clients to drop off of our services entirely.

Donor support is essential to meet this need. Without it we cannot offer our home and community-based services for free, expand or introduce services based on community need, or ensure that our residential facilities offer excellent care and support services.

Equity Statement

ACC Senior Services promotes diversity, equity, and inclusion in our workforce, volunteer corp, and with our community partners. We stand firm against discrimination based on ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, and social/economic status.
