Who We Are
Established in 1972, the Council on Aging has been serving the needs of the senior residents of Lake County, Ohio who are aged 60 and over with services ranging from case management to nutrition, light housekeeping and home safety modifications to volunteer opportunities. The Council on Aging strives to offer services and resources that allow seniors to live independently and safely in their own homes. We also offer support to their families and caregivers.

In 2010, the Council on Aging introduced the Aging and Disability Resource Center (ADRC) in partnership with the Western Reserve Area Agency on Aging. As part of this statewide initiative, the ADRC provides Information & Assistance, Benefits Assistance, as well as, Long Term Support Options Counseling and expands services to include adults with disabilities. The goal of the ADRC is to create a single, coordinated system of information and access to long term services and supports. Click here for more information about the ADRC and how we can serve you.
The Lake County Council on Aging receives funding primarily from the Western Reserve Area Agency on Aging (federal & state funds), the Lake County Senior Citizen Services Levy, the United Way of Lake County, and donations and service fees.

How to Get Started
When you call us at 440-205-8111 an Information & Assistance Specialist will answer your questions. You may also email firstname.lastname@example.org. Our specialists are trained to ask the right questions and guide you to the services and supports you need, even if you are uncertain as to what you are specifically looking for. Your call will be routed to the appropriate department depending upon your needs. If your needs cannot be addressed by the Information & Assistance Specialist, you may be referred to a Case Manager to arrange an in-home visit. During the visit, the Case Manager will talk with you, and anyone you want present, about your current situation and how you are managing, including your health, safety, nutrition, finances, housing, daily activities and any other issues. Together, you and the Case Manager will develop a care plan, including information, benefits, programs and services that you want from the Council on Aging or other agencies.
