Age Requirements

Services offered by the Department of Senior Affairs are especially designed for those age 50 and older. Programs funded by the Older Americans Act and the Area Agency on Aging (Home Delivered Meals, Transportation, and Care Coordination) have a minimum age of 60. Some classes, trips, and services require a fee. Other services, including lunch at our meal sites, may request a donation or a nominal fee; however, no one is denied services for choosing not to contribute.
