Services for Older Adults
The Office on Aging assists Knox County’s older adults to achieve the highest possible level of independence and quality of life. It has served the citizens of Knox County since 1975 through more than 20 programs.
The Office on Aging has the major responsibility in Knoxville and Knox County of planning for services for senior citizens; assessing needs of older adults and developing resources to meet those needs; coordinating services minimize duplication and avoid overlap–whether provided by public, nonprofit, or for-profit organizations; providing information about services and programs to older adults and their families and connecting them to those services; and advocating on behalf of older individuals in Knox County.
