Welcome to the Roscommon County
Commission on Aging
Roscommon County Commission on Aging, Inc. (RCCOA) is its own 501-c-3 nonprofit agency and operates under guidelines regulated by the Older Americans Act. The purpose of the Roscommon County Commission on Aging is to promote the welfare, independence, safety and health of our senior citizens through various programs. To put it plainly, our goal is to keep seniors in their preferred living arrangement for as long as safely possible.
To achieve this we offer programs such as:
“Meals-on-Wheels”, Homemaking, Personal Care, Respite Care, The Serenity Day Lodge (an adult Day service), Center Meals and Activities, Evidence-Based Health Workshops, Exercise Opportunities, Trips and so much more.
How are we funded?
Our funding basically comes from four sources:
State and Federal Grants that we apply for through a competitive grant process.
County Millage that is used to offset the costs not covered by the grants.
Suggested Donations from our clients and their families help keep programs available to everyone- even those who cannot afford to pay.
Community Donations from other individuals, local businesses, churches and civic organizations.
Who is eligible?
Services are available to residents of Roscommon County who are at least 60 years of age or their younger spouse. In addition to the age requirement, individual programs may have additional criteria that must be met.
Is there a charge for services?
Although there is no charge for most of the services offered, programs administered by RCCOA rely on suggested donations from individual clients and their families for support. Having said that, services are provided without regard to the individual’s ability and/or willingness to donate.
