Council on Aging


WHAT WE DO

The Greenfield Council on Aging is committed to fulfilling the following functions:

  • Providing, through its multi-purpose Senior Center, an environment that supports personal dignity, opportunities for sharing, creative expression, learning, and a general encouragement of initiative and self-fulfillment
  • Creating meaningful educational, social, recreational, cultural, and volunteer opportunities to encourage independence, participation, and community involvement.
  • Supporting healthy lifestyle opportunities through health promotion, health education, physical activities, and other wellness programs.
    Being responsive and accessible to the changing needs of seniors, in cooperation with community organizations, agencies and individuals.
  • Offering assistance in coping with the challenges of aging by providing information, referrals, and counseling as appropriate.
The Council on Aging operates under Section 6-18 of the City Code and a philosophy that says that seniors have a right to participate in determining matters which vitally affect them, and that there is an important community resource in the wisdom, experience, skills, and abilities which the senior population has to share.


MEETING SCHEDULE

The council's meetings are usually held on the third Tuesday of the month at 1 p.m. at the Greenfield Senior Center. Please check the calendar for scheduled meeting information, including agendas.
