The East Baton Rouge Council on Aging is mandated by the Older Americans Act (OAA), to respond to the needs of Americans aged 60 and over in the local community with the goal of keeping seniors living independently in their own homes. Senior Centers are an excellent way to break social isolation by engaging seniors with their community in a safe and enriching environment.

Services for Seniors
Trained Care Managers are available to answer questions, provide a thorough assessment of needs, as well as, make appropriate recommendations for suitable services.
As the parish provider for Meals on Wheels, EBRCOA delivers meals to individuals at home who are unable to purchase or prepare their own meals.
Central to EBRCOA’s mission is ensuring that seniors maintain their independence with the highest level of dignity.
I heard about all the good things that the Council on Aging was doing, and I was anxious to take part. So when I turned 60, I couldn’t get there fast enough. I come five days a week. I enjoy the meals; the staff is friendly and caring. Every one is a blessing to me as a senior. I go everywhere telling the story of the COA. People always ask me: Karen, now that you are retired, what do you do? I say I’m going to the COA. I don’t want to miss out on anything!

My mother was a member of the Council on Aging and received Meals on Wheels. Our family has been involved with the Council on Aging for many years and it has provided us support. I love the East Baton Rouge Council on Aging they are my family and they take care of me. They provide educational programs and make sure the staff gives us fun activities as well. They even provide medical equipment like walkers, canes and wheelchairs.
