Our Council on Aging has been an independent non-profit since July 8, 1974 serving Chatham County seniors by providing programs and services to keep them living at home longer and more safely. The Council is Chatham County’s main portal of entry to senior services; however, we are not a County Department.

This past year has been especially challenging due to COVID-19, but we stepped up to continue making a positive difference.

Since mid-March 2020, through the support of the community and sponsors like you, the Council has provided…

Frozen & Shelf-Stable Meals

Since adjusting our meals program in response to COVID-19, we have delivered over 16,500 Shelf-Stable Meals and 6,156 Frozen Meals. We've also provided over 5,448 Frozen and Shelf-Stable Meals for participant pick-up.

In-Home Aide & Caregiver Respite

We have provided over 33,456 hours of In-Home Aide services and over 1,981 hours of Caregiver Respite for those we serve, through a partnership with State-licensed home care agencies.

Equipment & Supplies

We have provided Incontinence Supplies to an average of 84 clients per month and Assistive Equipment Loans to 265 clients.

Health & Wellness Activities

We have streamed and delivered over 600 hours of online and phone-based Health, Wellness, Fitness and Educational programs, conference calls and small groups for seniors to connect socially while sheltering-in-place.

Information & Assistance Calls

We have responded to over 16,000 Information and Assistance Calls in addition to our outgoing friendly check-in calls.

And More...

Including over 1,500 Medical Transportation Rides; deliveries of boredom busters, like puzzle books and coloring supplies; physically distanced birthday parades for our oldest seniors and more.

With your help, we will continue making a positive difference in the lives of Chatham seniors and their families. These words speak to the impact of your support:

"I would like to express my sincere thanks for your organization! With the virus upheavals, I am not able to get to North Carolina to help my parents. Your Meals-on-Wheels program has helped relieve so much worry. –the daughter of a participant

"I want to let you know how much I appreciate all that the staff at the Council are doing for me and all the seniors. I am so thankful, because if it were not for you, I probably would not be here. You have treated me with respect and are so kind and caring. Receiving the meals puts a smile on my face." – one of our weekly meals recipients

"Thank you so much for everything you all did to make my dad feel special. You went above and beyond expectations and he is beyond thrilled. He talked about it all afternoon.” – the daughter of a 99-year-old participant, responding to our socially-distanced birthday parade to honor our seniors

"Thank you so much for your help arranging transport for my dad. We were thrilled with the service we received and it was a huge help getting him from rehab to his surgeon's office. We are most grateful for the services the Council on Aging is providing for the senior residents of Chatham County." – the daughter of a medical transportation recipient
