Councils on Aging are the principal agencies of local government that serve the elderly. First authorized by special legislation in 1956, there are now over 347 Councils in the Commonwealth. The three core responsibilities of the Councils on Aging are:
- To identify the needs of senior citizens along with the available resources within the community.
- To educate the Community at large in the challenges of aging and advocate for the needs of its senior citizens.
- To design, promote and put in place services that are needed and to coordinate the efforts of agencies which serve older people.
