For more than 40 years, the
Central Ohio Area Agency on Aging has been helping seniors and their families. COAAA provides
information, resources and education to the community,
as well as provides help at home for seniors to
continue independent living in their own homes.
In-home senior services include the
Senior Options Programs.
COAAA is operated under the City of Columbus, Recreation and Parks Department, Alan McKnight, Director, and Michael B. Coleman, Mayor.
During Older Americans Month each year, COAAA salutes the
special accomplishments of older adults with inductions to our
Hall of Fame. For more information about these awards and nominations
