Home Care Resources in Lake and Geauga County, OH
Whether you live in Lake County or Geauga County, being a senior or an adult with disabilities does not mean you have to stay at home. There is much to do in our community. Director Brian Rice has volunteered for the Lake County Council and Aging for over 15 years.
LCCOA offers Pancakes in the Park on four different dates throughout the summer and Brian has volunteered at many of these events. The breakfasts are co-sponsored by the Council on Aging, Lake Metroparks and Laketran. Having breakfast prepared and served in the park is a big attraction. Hundreds of seniors also signed up for chipping and putting at Erie Shores Golf Club in June.
In July breakfast was followed by kayaking, jet skiing, and sailing at Fairport Harbor Lakefront Park. August and September events include pancakes and short walks in the woods and activities at Lake Farmpark. Although hundreds of seniors sign up for activities, just as many simply enjoy the good food, fresh air, and spectating.
The Geauga County Senior Center Calendars are crammed with educational opportunities and elder activities for seniors of all ability levels. Activities include bowling, Zumba, fishing, yoga in the park, kayaking, shuffleboard, and Wii games.
Or how about a trip to the Holden Arboretum or star gazing at Geauga Park Districts Observatory Park? Caregivers referred by Griswold Home Care can provide transportation/accompaniment and an opportunity for each Geauga senior to reach their full potential.

“An incredible advocate for seniors in Lake County for many years,” is how LCCOA Executive Director Joseph Tomsick described Rice. “We have always been able to turn to Brian (and Griswold Home Care) in times of need.” Tomsick said Rice also shares a wealth of knowledge about seniors and he has valued his expertise.
“I get tremendous enjoyment from delivering meals and talking to the people I see for a few minutes a couple times a week,” he said. “It’s been a long relationship with many of them.”
