Community Office on Aging


Working across all of the Division of Senior and Adult Services (DSAS), the Community Office on Aging (OOA) increases DSAS’ visibility in the community through marketing, public relations, strategic partnerships and collaboration with partner agencies, including public, private and academic.

The Office on Aging identifies new funding streams that enable DSAS to better deliver programs and services, and advocates for the passage of legislation that will improve the lives of older and disabled residents of Cuyahoga County. This office also facilitates communication among peer agencies by convening the Cuyahoga County Senior Services Network, which includes municipal offices on aging and community senior centers. 

Additionally, the OOA provides leadership to the Cuyahoga County Division of Senior and Adult Services Advisory Board. The Office on Aging co-sponsors the annual Cuyahoga County Conference on Aging, with The MetroHealth System, and plans a host of special events to promote DSAS programs and services throughout Cuyahoga County.
