America is graying. Northern Michigan is graying.

As time goes by, the Manistee County Council on Aging’s mission of keeping area seniors independent and in their own homes is becoming more vital than ever.

The Manistee County Council on Aging (MCCOA) was organized in 1971. A 501(c)(3) nonprofit funded by a voter-approved millage, the council works to keep seniors independent by providing a variety of services that offer assistance to Manistee County residents over the age of 60.

MCCOA is housed in the Manistee Senior Center, located in downtown Manistee at 457 River Street. Every weekday, the senior center hosts activities, from exercise to card games to services like hearing aid and eyeglass repair clinics.

The senior center also serves as a congregate meal site for Meals on Wheels, and lunch is served daily at noon. Lunch is free, but a $3 donation is suggested for residents age 60 or older. If you are unable to make this donation, you are still welcome to partake of the meal.

Please stop by and check us out! We have a lot to offer, and we hope to meet you soon!
