The Herkimer County Office for the Aging (OFA) plans, funds, and delivers services to people aged 60 and older in Herkimer County.
As the authorized Area Agency on Aging, the Herkimer County Office for the Aging receives funds from donations, the federal government, NYS Office for the Aging and Herkimer County.
Our Goal; to help senior citizens remain in their homes, independently, for as long as possible, while giving priority to those with the greatest economic and social needs as well as older individuals at risk for institutional placement.
Our mission; to offer a wide range of supportive services with respect and dignity for the senior citizen population and their families.
“…but old age is also importantly about transformation as we learn to accept what we cannot change, rage when we must, and adopt new ways of life as needed.”
Self, Society, and the "New Gerontology" Martha B. Holstein, PhD and Meredith Minkler, DrPH
The programs that we provide to seniors citizens are vitally important to them being able to maintain their independence. If anyone would like to donate to any of the programs that the Office for the Aging provides, it would be greatly appreciated and would assist us in continuing our mission.
