The Preble County Council on Aging is a private, non-profit, 501(c)(3) social service organization which was incorporated by the State of Ohio in 1973. Its purpose and mission "is to provide services, information, activities and advocacy for senior adults in Preble County, to improve their quality of life while in their own homes and communities." In 1987, the agency received designation as the focal point for the provision of services to the elderly within Preble County by the Area Agency on Aging and the Ohio Department of Aging. Certain in-home and community based services are provided for Preble County residents who are age 60 and over. Eligibility, for some of these services, is determined by an assessment and priorization process that ensures services are provided to those most in need of the service. Clients are not assessed a fee for these services, but voluntary donations are encouraged.
Participation in Senior Center activities and services are generally on a first-come, first-served basis, for county residents who are age 50 and over. Fees are not assessed for participation unless there are additional costs associated with the event, such as a special luncheon with entertainment, trip fares, instructor fees, bands at dances, etc., and these are passed along to participants.
