Mission Statement

Central Oregon Council on Aging is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting dignity, well-being, security and independence for Central Oregon’s Senior Citizens and disabled adults and is the designated Area Agency on Aging.

Description

The Central Oregon Council on Aging (COCOA) 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 COCOA to provide congregate meals to large groups of seniors and to establish an ongoing presence in more remote, rural and isolated communities.

Today, COCOA’s 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 seniors with -- dementia; coordination of in-home care; free legal assistance, health insurance and Medicaid advising; the Foster Grandparent Program, and a variety of information, education, outreach and referral services.
