Silver Steps

Silver Steps Programming is for active aging adults with Down syndrome and their families. Fortunately, individuals with Down syndrome are living longer lives than ever before.  Unfortunately, the services these individuals need and deserve aren’t always readily available..  The Down Syndrome Association of Greater St. Louis is dedicated to working with families and support providers to identify and address the needs of our Active Aging Adult population through programs, resources, education, and advocacy.

Silver Steps Support Group

Our Silver Steps Support Group is a way to connect with other parents, siblings and caregivers who are taking care of an adult with Down syndrome. Typical topics discussed include housing, transportation, health, benefits, and social activities.

JOIN US!  Our Silver Steps Support Group Meetings are held the fourth Tuesday of every month at the DSAGSL Office.  Every other month, the group meets in the morning or evening.  Visit our calendar to see what time Silver Steps Support Group is meeing this month!
