ABOUT THE YORK COUNTY COUNCIL ON AGING

The York County Council on Aging is a private nonprofit organization with accomplished staff members and dedicated volunteers who are committed to providing coordinated services to keep the senior citizens of York and Chester counties living independently in their homes for as long as possible.

 

We offer and coordinate senior centers, the home-delivered meals program for both York and Chester counties, homemaker services, volunteers and transportation.

 

The needs of all seniors are similar, and York County Council on Aging is here to help. If you or your senior loved one needs additional services to remain independent, check out what we have to offer.

 

Last year, the York County Council on Aging provided 105,161 meals to area seniors in need. We spent 7,557 hours performing light housekeeping services for frail, home-bound seniors to help them remain living independently in their homes.

 

We documented 3,416 hours of physical fitness training, and provided 402,043 miles of transportation to and from our senior centers, as well as to doctor appointments, dialysis treatments, pharmacy, grocery store and more.

Whether the need is temporary or long-term, the York County Council on Aging is here to help.

 

Mission Statement

 

The mission of the York County Council on Aging is to serve as a focal point for the provision and coordination of a broad range of services and activities for senior adults in York and Chester Counties. We strive to improve health and wellness, decrease isolation and provide assistance to seniors that will enhance their ability to live independently, remain out of institutions and improve the quality of their lives. These services include, but are not limited to: group dining, home delivered meals, home care, physical fitness, housing, volunteer services, and the operation of a coordinated transportation service that includes senior, contract and public transit service.
