The Office for the Aging plans, coordinates and provides an array of community-based services to older adults and persons who require assistance in the long-term care system, in an effort to promote independence, dignity and quality of life.
We offer an array of programming that provides socialization, recreation and fitness opportunities for older adults to remain active and energized.
Through its distinctive role of committed advocate and community partner, the agency strives to ensure clients' needs will continue to be met now and in the future.
