About Council on Aging of Central Oregon

Location:

373 NE GREENWOOD AVE, BEND, OR 97701, US

Mission Statement

Council on Aging of Central Oregon is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting dignity, well-being, security and independence for Aging Adults of Central Oregon and is the designated Area Agency on Aging.

Description

The Council on Aging of Central Oregon began by offering Dial-a-Ride services in the 1970s. It soon added nutrition programs including Meals-on-Wheels. The 1990s saw the construction of senior centers which enabled the Council to provide congregate meals to large groups of aging adults and to establish an ongoing presence in more remote, rural and isolated communities.

Today, Council on Aging staff members provide not only nutrition programs, but also case management with individual assessment and periodic follow-up; resources for disabled seniors, including support for those suffering from - and those caring for those with -- dementia; coordination of in-home care; free legal assistance, Medicare and Medicaid advising; and a variety of information, education, outreach and referral services.
