Services and Responsibilities

Pope County employs a Coordinator on Aging, who is a trained advocate providing information and assistance to individuals over 60 years of age in Pope County who are in need of services. The need for services is determined through contact with seniors, their families, discussions at senior centers, county board on aging, as well as referrals from other agencies and organizations.

A very important goal of this program is to enable Pope County elderly residents to stay independent and safe in their own homes or residence as long as possible.
