Franklin County Office on Aging
Office on Aging

The Franklin County Office on Aging is primarily responsible for planning, coordinating, and providing centralized access to diverse services and programs that assist older adults, dependent adults, and their families in the maintenance of independent living.


Senior Options

Senior Options is funded by the Senior Services Levy and provides "one-stop shopping" for callers needing information, advocacy, or direct access to a wide range of community-based services that allow our county's older citizens to live independently in their own homes.


Adult Protective Services

Adult Protective Services assists older people and people with disabilities who are, or are in danger of being abused, neglected, or exploited. Every action taken by Adult Protective Services balances the duty to protect the adult's safety with their ability to make decisions that impact their own life.


CommunityCare Registry

The CommunityCare Registry (CCR) is designed to connect those in need with pre-screened, self-employed home care workers whose qualifications, availability, and hourly rates match their needs.


Caregiver Support

The Caregiver Support Program supports caregivers of older adults age 60 and older on a short-term basis. The Program can assist with a variety of services, including in-home respite, adult day care, and durable medical equipment.


Minor Home Repair

Minor Home Repair strives to minimize the danger of falls and other accidents, enabling older adults to live at home in safety and independence. This might mean adding a wheelchair or walker ramp, installing grab bars in the bathroom, or making other minor property repairs.
