Welcome to the Columbia County Office for the Aging
The Columbia County Board of Supervisors and the Office for the Aging are committed to assisting our older citizens to remain in their own homes and to actively participate in family and community life.
In 1975, the Board of Supervisors created the Office for the Aging as a unit of local government to serve and be the focal point in Columbia County for matters related to aging. Through advocacy, services and planning and coordination, the Office for the Aging addresses the priority needs of our older residents.
The services described on this site are a range of community-based and home care services. While some individuals need assistance for only a short period of time, others become increasingly frail and will require aid on a regular, ongoing basis. Staff can help you select the most appropriate type of assistance to meet your individual needs and will arrange and authorize those services you decide upon.
