Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

The Council on Aging strives to provide the best programs and services to assist older adults in maintaining quality of life and independence at home to promote optimal physical and mental health. By providing in-home aide and Meals on Wheels, we allow older adults to avoid early institutionalization. Our senior centers offer socialization and wellness/fitness opportunities so seniors may avoid isolation, loneliness and physical deterioration.
