Mission Statement

The Posey County Council on Aging is a n0n-profit
agency created for the purpose of improving the
life of older Americans. The primary objective
of the Agency is threefold:

1) To enable older adults to live in their homes
as long as possible with appropriate
supportive services.

2) To remove individuals and social barriers
to economic and personal independence
for older persons, including the provision
of opportunities for volunteer activities.

3) To act as an advocate of older persons in
developing community resources for the
aging throughout the Posey County area
while providing a
comprehensive service network.

Posey County Council on Aging
operates its programs and services without regard to race, color, and national origin in accordance with Title VI of the 1964 Civil Rights Act.

Each PCCA Center offers a variety of activities. Please
check the calendar for additional information.


Our service schedule runs Monday thru Friday

The trip destinations include
all medical appointments.
We are also providing homemaking services.

The newest addition is the 9th vehicle to our fleet.

Softly green gives way to gold

The summer warmth gives way to cold

And autumn winds begin to blow

Across the changing earth.
