Bay Village Community Services Department

Dwyer Center exteriorIn Bay Village, our community members are important to us. That's why we offer services specifically for seniors, those with disabilities and other residents with needs by bringing together the human resources that our community has to offer.  These services are housed at the Dwyer Memorial Senior Center, 300 Bryson Lane.

Community Services

We work in partnership with individuals,  public and private agencies in Bay Village to establish  programs that address the many issues facing our residents, including:

  • Family needs
  • Health needs
  • Low income needs
  • Social service needs

The Bay Village Community Services Department also offers social, educational and wellness programs for older adults, as well as potential service opportunities that will improve their quality of life.

Posted 5-2020 - Free Daily Wellness Calls

The Ohio Department of Aging (ODA) announced last week a free, daily check-in by phone service for Ohio's older residents to ensure their well-being amid the ongoing Coronavirus (COVID-19) public health emergency and beyond. The "Staying Connected" service is open to Ohio residents age 60 or older who have a valid phone number. Those living alone in the community are encouraged to enroll.

The automated service, which is available 7 a.m. to 6 p.m.seven days a week, contacts participants each day within a one-hour window selected by them during sign-up. After confirming the caller is OK, it offers to connect the caller with the local Area Agency on Aging for information about services or assistance.

If a participant does not answer after three attempts, a call is placed to an alternate contact, if one is on file. After multiple failed attempts to reach the participant and the alternate contact, a call is placed to the non-emergency services line of the local sheriff's office.  Eligible Ohio residents can learn more, or sign up, by visiting www.aging.ohio.gov/stayingconnected or calling 1-833-ODA-CHAT (1-833-632-2428).
