The Council on Aging's mission is to establish policies and work with the director to provide programs and services for elders.

Age & Dementia Friendly Communities Initiative

The cities of Chicopee and Holyoke, and the town of South Hadley, have partnered with the Pioneer Valley Planning Commission to create a regional action plan for more age-friendly and dementia-friendly communities. The plan addresses quality of life issues such as walkability of outdoor spaces, transportation needs, information access, and social isolation, particularly in relation to older adults.
