Non-Profit Agency of the Year!
Our mission is simple:
To seek, develop, coordinate,
and administer home and communitybased
programs and services for senior persons
of St. Lucie County and adjoining areas.
Our goal is simple...
..But worthwhile. We strive
to serve the diverse needs of seniors,
and improve their quality of life in meaningful
ways. We offer a variety of programs and
activities which not only promote independence,
but expand horizons. Here, seniors come
to share interests and experiences, learn
new or sharpen old skills, receive assistance
with the chores of daily living, support
one another, and make new friends - all
in a safe and caring environment.
Promoting senior independence
Did you know that more
than 20,000 senior residents of St. Lucie
County receive assistance from the Council
On Aging every year? We help seniors continue
to live independently and delay placement
into supervised living facilities.
In a comprehensive effort to help these
residents maintain independence without
sacrificing quality of life, we offer
a broad-based list of services to choose
Our case management and referral staff
will supply links to appropriate medical,
therapeutic, and social support systems.
Some services are supported in part by
state and federal programs. Others are
available through private pay.
