Older adulthood should be a time for enjoyment and celebrating much-deserved independence. Sometimes, however, aging creates challenges that can be a barrier to this independence.

For over 20 years, the Butler County Elderly Services Program (ESP) has provided home-based services that can assist with aging-related challenges and help to ensure continued independence. ESP is funded by a countywide tax levy and is administered by the Council on Aging of Southwestern Ohio. LifeSpan has partnered with ESP since its inception and provides the Care Management as well as the Intake and Information and Referral for the program.
