Senior Yellow Pages, Local and State Services for Seniors in Greater Bangor

Since late September 2016, the Senior Yellow Pages has been available.  The Manual of Local and State Services for Seniors in the Greater Bangor area was developed by Gateway Seniors Without Walls, with assistance from students and staff at the Center of Aging, University of Maine, and the partnering agencies of the MOOV  Penobscot Thriving in Place Project. The manual is roughly 250 pages.  It is free to anyone who wants one and is available in  libraries, the Eastern Area Agency on Aging, and elsewhere. We have distributed 2200 copies throughout greater Bangor. We hope to revise the manual in the next few years, correcting errors, removing services that no longer exist and expanding the coverage of services and topics. Among the features of the manual:

  •  covers greater Bangor, including Alton, Bangor, Bradford, Bradley, Brewer, Eddington, Glenburn, Hampden, Holden, Hermon, Kenduskeag, Milford, Old Town, Orono, Orrrington, and Veazie
  • very comprehensive
  • 14 pitch type, easy to see and read
  • introductions explain complex topics
  • includes information such as phone number, address, and website
  • describes services, covering what is special about each
  • contains table of contents
  • contains index
  • available free
