Council on Aging
COAs provide information and referral to seniors, their caregivers, and other people with aging issues.
A COA is part of the local government and works with other senior agencies and city/town departments to provide social, recreational, health, safety, and educational programs for seniors that enhance mental, physical, and emotional well-being.
Most COAs operate Senior Centers for residents age 60 years or older. Senior Centers range in size from small, part-time, volunteer-run centers to large facilities with game rooms, exercise equipment, and a full schedule of programs. COAs encourage seniors to be actively involved in the planning and operation of senior center activities.
Contact your town’s COA for specific information on the programs they offer.
