The Chatham County Council on Aging was founded on July 8, 1974 as a nonprofit organization dedicated to serving the older population of Chatham County. We continue to promote and support independent living, and the physical and mental wellness of older adults and their families through a wide range of programs in partnership with many other community organizations. The Council is committed to helping Chatham be an age-friendly community where our growing older population enjoys opportunities for social and civic engagement, continuous learning, fitness and volunteerism.
Our programs and services include:
Home-delivered meals (commonly known as "Meals on Wheels")
Information and Options Counseling
Senior Center Operations in Pittsboro and Siler City (Both State-Certified Centers of Excellence)
Wellness and Health
Family Caregiver Support
Equipment Donation/Loan Program
Minor Home Repairs
And many other services, including Seniors' Health Insurance Information Program (SHIIP) to help people with questions about Medicare, and the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Program (VITA).
