Services for the Elderly
At Kershaw County Council on Aging (KCCOA), we understand the value of our senior community. We are proud to aid our seasoned and mature friends in their everyday lives to give them the opportunity to thrive. From ensuring they receive needed services to providing fun and active programs, Kershaw County Council on Aging leads the way to help make each day meaningful.
The original Kershaw County Council on Aging constitution states the organization's purpose is "to do the things that may be necessary, proper, or advantageous to promote the welfare of the aging population of Kershaw County." Today we hold ourselves to that standard to provide seniors with the best quality of life available. As our Vision states, KCCOA wants "To Build a Senior Community that Thrives!"
Our facilities in Bethune, Camden, and Lugoff are the place to be for our top of the line programs for seniors. We provide daily exercise, activities, and lunch to keep our community's most valuable members engaged every day. Some of our programs include:
A Matter of Balance – workshop teaching fall prevention
Walk with Ease – walking & stretching for health promotion
Meals On Wheels – nutrition service to homebound seniors
