The Barrington Area Council on Aging is the primary organization in the Barrington area that serves our growing population of seniors and caregivers, including family and friends.
For active seniors, we offer programs, services and activities to help them remain vital, contributing members of the community.
For seniors requiring more care—and for family caregivers—we form a team consisting of the senior, the caregiver and others. Using the resources of our own staff, as well as other agencies, we work to identify services that will best help the senior remain independent. These might include Meals with Wheels, in-home caregiver services or appropriate housing options.
Given a choice, older adults often prefer to stay in their community—and in most cases, in their own homes—for as long as possible. BACOA helps make that choice possible. We strive to ensure that seniors can age in place by providing resources and information they need to make decisions on their health, their living situation and their personal care needs.
