What is a COA

Councils on Aging aren’t just places for “old” people, they are a wealth of resources for anyone over the age of 60.  From the SHINE benefits program, to healthy lifestyles, walking groups and exercise classes, knitting, painting – you name it – your Council on Aging and/or local Senior Center is the place to be.

Don’t consider yourself a “senior?”  That’s ok.  Your Council on Aging isn’t about age.  It’s a place to meet and greet old friends and new.  It’s a family atmosphere that’s welcoming to all.  As the boomer generation enters their 60’s, the population is getting more and more diverse, according to the National Council on Aging.  Senior centers are places to experience other cultures and enjoy the immersion of traditions in the human race.

Your Council on Aging can help with:

  • Public Benefits Information and Applications
  • Meals and Nutrition Programs
  • Transportation Services
  • Health, Wellness and Fitness Programs
  • Educational and Arts Programs
  • Social and Cultural Activities
  • Civic Engagement
  • Volunteer Opportunities
  • and much more!
