The Somerville Council on Aging (COA) provides comprehensive services that enhance the lives of the older adult population and enrich the community at large. The COA is deeply committed to providing health & wellness and social programs that reflect the diversity of our older adult population. We promote and support the concept of aging in place in our community. We promote and safeguard the health and independence of older adults by advocating for them in many areas; providing informational, referral, and case management services; coordinating services to keep older adults in the community; and providing meaningful social and recreational options to enhance their lives.
Changes from FY20
A minor increase in Personal Services due to collective bargaining increases is offset by slight reductions in Ordinary Maintenance to Repairs & Maintenance, Supplies, and Printing. We have proposed a minor increase to our Postage line in order to increase outreach to seniors during the COVID-19 pandemic.
