We Excel In Aging Well!

The Monroe County Office for the Aging is dedicated to serving our older residents.

In 1973, the Office for the Aging was established by the Monroe County Legislature and designated by the Federal and State governments as the Area Agency on Aging. The Monroe County Office for the Aging (MCOFA) is proud to celebrate over 37 years of excellent service to its older residents, and is committed to continuing this tradition of service.

The Office for the Aging is responsible for planning, coordinating, funding and advocating for programs and services which meet the needs of Monroe County residents age 60 and over. Services are targeted to individuals with the greatest social and/or economic need, placing emphasis on serving those older persons who are low-income, minority and/or those with physical and mental disabilities.

In 1973, there were 97,000 residents 60 years of age and older in Monroe County. Today, there are more than 122,000 older residents, and the numbers keep growing. It is our goal to ensure that Monroe County’s older citizens “excel in aging well.”

The goal of Office for the Aging is to promote a safe and independent lifestyle through timely and responsive systems of protective services, long-term care, quality nutrition and supportive in-home services through a consumer-focused and coordinated service delivery system that protects, supports, and advocates for older residents of Monroe County.
