As aging experts, we ensure seniors can access the support, services, and resources they need from the Council on Aging and other tri-county partners.

The Council on Aging of Central Oregon provides food and nutrition options like Meals on Wheels and community dining, Medicare and options counseling, family caregiver support, and social engagement programs, such as Caring Connections and Pet Pals.

Our Mission

Connect older adults and their loved ones to information and services that support their changing needs and the desire to age at home.

Our Vision

An inclusive community that values older adults and strives to grow older better, together.

Our Values

Help seniors navigate aging while serving as a beacon of compassion, collaboration, reliability, integrity, and respect.

What We Believe

Human Connection Is Central to a Meaningful Life
The need for human connection transcends economic status and age. Through sharing meals, volunteering, and conversing with others, our community can experience meaningful engagement with a larger world.

Aging is a Community Responsibility
We believe that aging is a community responsibility; however, with many children moving to lower-cost areas,  some older adults are left without strong family support or critical resources. After contributing to our local communities, Central Oregon’s older adults deserve to be able to remain in the counties they helped build.

Since 1975, we have been a trusted partner and leader supporting older adults and vulnerable seniors in Central Oregon. Our community relies on the Council on Aging as “the go-to resource” for programs, services, and information.

We do not discriminate based on race, creed, color, ethnicity, national origin, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender expression, age, height, weight, physical or mental ability, veteran status, military obligations, and marital status in serving clients, enlisting volunteers, hiring staff or partnering with organizations and individuals to help us deliver on our mission.
