"Connecting Seniors in their Community"
The Richland County Commission on Aging (RCCOA) offers a number of services to help our area Seniors (age 60 and over) continue to live as independently as possible. Our services are aimed at health, nutrition, socialization, and transportation.
The RCCOA is funded by federal and state grants, county funds, and generous local contributions. All programs are open to seniors age 60 and over, regardless of income level.
