Especially for Seniors

Butler County Area Agency on Aging resuming Senior Center activities, Mon., September 28

Due to an abundance of caution and concern for older adults during the COVID-19 pandemic, and to comply with social distancing recommended by Governor Wolf's office and the Pennsylvania Department of Health, Butler County Senior Centers will operate on a modified schedule with strict capacity limits and social distancing/mask wearing compliance. 

Seniors must call at least two days in advance to make a reservation to visit the Center for a meal and programming.

Beginning the first week of October, those who are unable to get a reservation due to capacity limits can get a hot grab-and-go lunch from the Center.

Governed by the Older Americans Act of 1965 (reauthorized in 2011) and the Pennsylvania Department of Aging, the Butler County Area Agency on Aging is one of 52 AAoAs statewide that provide information and services to help seniors remain independent in the community for as long as possible.

The Area Agency on Aging administers programs and manages services for Butler County residents who are 60 years of age or older. Agency programs and services are designed to serve approximately 28,000 older consumers who call Butler County home.
