COA offers free, confidential consulting, connecting you to all the programs and services you might need. A trained COA staff Services Specialist will work with you to create a plan for a better life. We can connect you with transportation, meals, health care, and home care services.
We provide an individual one-on-one needs assessment at your home, at the The Council on Aging office, or at an outreach location. Services Specialists gather information on physical and emotional health, financial need, and physical safety. They use this information to connect you with community programs and services to meet your specific needs.
Successful Aging takes effort, and COA can help. Our annual day-long workshop each May offers education and information, plus free health screenings to track your progress toward a vibrant maturity.
If you are nearing 65 and wondering what to do about Medicare, COA can walk you through the enrollment process, help you keep up with changes and requirements, and get the maximum benefit from the program.
Caregivers can get support too. If you are caring for someone elderly you don’t have to do it by yourself. Let skilled aides and caring volunteers give you a break. Caregivers Education and Support Groups respect the difficult role of those who care for the elderly and are a resource for information, energy and understanding. Attending caregiver educational or support groups provides an opportunity to share the challenges and rewards as well as gain ideas for coping and practical information on caregiving.
