Office on Aging
The CAC Office on Aging provides a wide variety of programs and services that improve the quality of life for older people, including programs that help them remain in their own homes for as long as possible. Programs of the Office on Aging offer a broad spectrum of health and nutrition-related services, consumer and home-safety related services, in-home services, and educational, recreational, and volunteer opportunities for seniors.
In addition to providing direct services, the Office on Aging offers information for older people, their family members, and professionals who provide services for seniors. The office also does long-range planning to develop new resources and coordinate existing ones to provide the best possible quality of life for seniors in the community, both now and looking toward the future.
Among the information resources of the Office on Aging are Elder News and Views, a free newsletter with current news of interest to seniors, and the Senior Service Directory, a comprehensive resource guide to services for Knoxville and Knox County seniors.
