The Statement of Purpose of the Greenfield Council on Aging is based on this premise:

The community shares a collective responsibility for those who are seniors, that seniors have a right to participate in determining matters which vitally affect them, and that there is an important community resource in the wisdom, experience, skills, and abilities which the senior population has to share.


In accordance with this philosophy, the Council is committed to fulfilling the following functions:

1. Provide, through its multi-purpose Senior Center, an environment that supports personal dignity, opportunities for sharing, creative expression, learning, and a general encouragement of initiative and self-fulfillment.

2. Provide meaningful educational, social, recreational, cultural, and volunteer opportunities to encourage independence, participation and community involvement.

3. Provide healthy lifestyle support through health promotion, health education, physical activities, and other wellness programs.

4. Be responsive and accessible to the changing needs of seniors, in cooperation with community organizations, agencies and individuals. Offer assistance in coping with the challenges of aging by providing information, referrals, and counseling as appropriate.
