The Avon Council on Aging is charged with recognizing and understanding the interests, needs and concerns of the town senior citizens.  It is the COA's commitment to develop, design, and implement programs, as well as educate the community about aging in place. The COA primarily provides information, referrals for services, and support to ensure dignity and independence of residents 60 and over and their care partners living in the community.  The COA endeavors to maximize the quality of life and help our seniors live safely and in good health with socialization at its core.
