Education & Support Programs

At Senior Services at Jefferson Regional, we believe that knowledge improves health and welfare and can also empower seniors to live independently.  Take part in one of these programs and see for yourself!

AARP Driver Safety Class

By taking a driver safety course you'll learn the current rules of the road, defensive driving techniques, and how to operate your vehicle more safely in today's increasingly challenging driving environment. You'll learn how you can manage and accommodate common age-related changes in vision, hearing and reaction time. Founded in 1979, AARP Driver Safety has helped millions of drivers stay safe on the roads. Although the course is geared to drivers age 50 and older, the course is open to people of all ages.

The AARP Driver Safety course is available in a classroom setting at the James Bibro Pavilion on Jefferson Regional Medical Center's Main Campus.

You may be eligible to receive an insurance discount upon completing the course, so consult your agent for details. You might also be eligible to receive a discount on roadside assistance plans.

AARP membership is not required to take the course and there are no tests to pass.  After attending the course you’ll receive a certificate of completion that can be presented to your insurance agent for a possible reduction in your auto insurance premiums.

The classroom course costs $12 for AARP members and $14 for non-members.

Tax Counseling for the Elderly

Senior Services at Jefferson Regional is proud to be a host site for Tax-Aide, an AARP Foundation program provided in cooperation with the Internal Revenue Service. Trained TCE volunteers will counsel and prepare federal and state tax returns for low to moderate income seniors aged 60 and older.

There is no charge for the tax-preparation services and returns are filed electronically. Call Senior Services to make an appointment February through April.
