ABOUT US

The Council on Aging has been serving St. Johns County older adults, their families, and caregivers since 1973.  During that first year, we served a daily congregate meal in Flagler Hospital to 60 participants and we delivered Meals on Wheels to a total of five homebound elders.

As we enter our 45th year of service to the community, the COA has become the gateway to information on successful aging. We operate 5 senior community centers in St. Johns County, deliver over 300 Meals on Wheels every day, offer 5 Integrative Memory Enhancement Programs and an Adult Day Care Center, provide services and companionship to elder residents through both our social services department for those who qualify and our Coastal Home Care fee-for-service in-home care component and have a schedule of classes and activities that include writing, exercise, painting, yoga, book clubs, movie clubs and more.  Here you’ll find resources for caregivers, strategies for dealing with health challenges, information on wellness…even a senior singles social club. Whatever you’re looking for, chances are good you’ll find it at the Council on Aging. Because, at COA, it’s not about us…it’s all about you! We’re your COA! Call (904) 209-3700 to learn more.
