adams-council-on-aging-minivan-2The Older Americans Act of 1965 was established by Congress to assist older Americans in securing opportunities for employment, the pursuit of meaningful activities, physical and mental health services and to enable them to remain independent as long as possible and to enrich their retirement years.

Under the guidelines of this Congressional Act, Adams County Council on Aging has developed a network of services and programs offered to all those 60 years or older.

Partial funding is provided by Aging and In-Home Services of Northeast Indiana through Title IIIB of the Older Americans Act, Social Service Block Grant Funds and the CHOICE  program.

Donations and contributions are greatly appreciated.

Funding is also received from the Adams County Commissioners, City of Decatur, City of Berne, United Way of Adams County and local Foundations and Organizations.
