Roscommon County Commission on Aging’s Director Tom Pettit and Chairman Chuck Corwin were among those representing Roscommon County and Region 9 Area Agency on Aging at Older Michiganians Day in Lansing on May 17th. The group met with legislators from Northern Michigan to encourage support for “senior services”. The picture was snapped while we were speaking to Representative Rendon. Thank you to all of you that went with us!)
Roscommon County Commission on Aging, Inc., has operated through Trio Council on Aging Inc., since 1974. The Commission on Aging has become its own entity and operates under guidelines regulated by the Older Americans Act, since 1997. The purpose of this organization is to promote the welfare, independence, safety and health of our senior citizens through various programs. Services are available to residents of Roscommon County who are at least 60 years of age.
Each of the county’s three centers offers monthly and daily activities which include exercise, games, and various clinics. We also have special concerts, speakers, and trips planned throughout the year.
Several services are provided each month. Meals on Wheels are delivered throughout the county and thousands of meals are served at the centers each month. Homemaking, personal care, respite, and chore hours are also provided each month.
Although there is no charge for any of our services, programs administered by the Commission on Aging, rely on donations from individuals for support. The suggested donation for lunch at each of the Centers is $2.50.
Stop by the Center nearest you for food, resources, fun, and friendship.
