There are more than 59,000 people in Rockland over the age of 60. The special needs of this population are the primary concern of the Rockland County Office for the Aging. We hope the information provided here will assist older Rocklanders and their families to locate and utilize information about the programs available to them.
The Rockland County Office for the Aging provides a variety of programs, either through its own efforts or through sub-contractors. The programs are designed to maintain maximum independence in the home and to provide employment and volunteer activities. Advocacy by and for the elderly is a prime activity. The goal is a comprehensive and coordinated county-wide system of services. Priorities for the year are outlined in the Annual Plan of the Office for the Aging.
