About the Chatham County Council on Aging:

On July 8th, the Chatham County Council on Aging (COA) will celebrate our 46th anniversary as a nonprofit serving Chatham seniors and their families.  

With your support, the Council is continuing to serve Chatham seniors and their families in these extraordinary times. Your contributions help us provide food and a wide array of supplies to those who are homebound and sheltering-in-place. These include incontinence supplies, personal hygiene items, pet care, exercise bands and hand weights; reading materials and puzzles, cloth face coverings for essential outings, and much more. 

Throughout each week, COA staff members make regular, friendly check-in calls to be sure Chatham seniors are okay and if they need any assistance.  As another way to combat isolation and keep seniors active while sheltering-in-place, our Council staff have produced an amazing array of online and virtual activities to keep folks active and engaged. Your support helps keep these calls and activities coming!

Your support also helps the Council provide in-home personal care and caregiver respite through state-licensed home care agencies; transportation to medical appointments; and assistance with essential home modifications and repairs. In addition, we are still receiving and loaning assistive equipment—from hospital beds to canes.
