Agency Spotlight:Ashland County Council on Aging
June 23, 2020

June is Elder Empowerment Month, and the Mental Health & Recovery Board is working with the Ashland County Council on Aging to provide the very best resources for older adults and their caregivers—with the goal of giving back life! It’s important for older adults to stay connected to their community and get the resources they need. The Ashland County Council on Aging offers many services to help older adults and their caregivers continue to navigate the aging process.


Meal and Nutrition Services

The Council’s meal and nutrition services now come straight to your door! With communal meals on hold for now, you can still get a nutritious meal for yourself or your loved one every weekday. Just call or email at least one day in advance to reserve your meal. nutritionashcocoa@zoominternet.net


Legal Services

If you need some legal advice for yourself or your loved one, the legal services branch is still open for business. The Council offers 45-minute consultations with an elder law attorney—for free! For more information, just contact the director at directorashcocoa@zoominternet.net


Information/Referral Services

This service helps you get the information you need for all kinds of important questions. Maybe you need assistance navigating the social security system or Medicare, or some help applying for your Golden Buckeye Card or government assistance. The Council is here to help with the many different applications and forms you find yourself or your loved one needing. Just send an email to informationashcocoa@zoominternet.net to find out more.


Transportation Services

If you or your loved one can no longer drive, The Council helps by providing free door-to-door transportation services to all seniors age 60 and up. Contact them today at transportashcocoa@zoominternet.net to reserve your spot.


Please note that The Council has suspended Homemaker and Activities services temporarily, in order to help protect against the spread of COVID-19. If you have any questions about availability or have immediate needs, please call the Council on Aging at (419) 281-1477. Or if you or your loved one is in crisis, call the Mental Health & Recovery Board’s crisis hotline at (419) 289-6111.
