The St. Joseph County Commission on Aging provides a wide range of services to older adults.

The COA provides help in the home for seniors who are in need of assistance with light cleaning or personal care. We also provide respite care and chore work. In addition, the COA provides more than 130,000 meals to homebound seniors. This represents about 250 people in our County who lack the ability to meet their own nutritional needs. The COA operates two thriving senior centers that offer activity and fitness programming to help keep seniors healthy and provide for a high degree of quality of life. We also serve a Noon meal at our centers Monday through Friday. The COA provides reduced bus tickets for seniors in the County, assistance with building ramps, counseling services on Medicare and Medicaid and many more services and support primarily funded by the St. Joseph County Millage.
