FREE to Older Adults
We receive outside funding so we can provide programs and services at low or no cost to the older adults of Boone County.  We raise funds through federal, state, and municipal grants, foundation grants, corporate and individual donations, fundraising events, and more.  This means you can receive free information and assistance with government forms and complicated programs, free in-home care if you qualify, free use of mobility equipment, and of course free membership in our Keen Age Center.

Ageism
Have you been treated differently because of your age?  That is called “ageism” and it is not ok.  It is prejudice or discrimination solely on the grounds of chronological age.  It can make aging a negative experience, which can become personal and unhealthy.  Those who feel negative about growing old tend to have more health problems and die younger than those with more positive attitudes.  Ironically, it is the only form of prejudice we will all experience, if we live long enough.  Boone County Council on Aging stands with you in the fight against ageism.  We believe in your value as a human being.  We believe growing older is an opportunity to thrive, have a purpose, and make a positive impact on our community.  We believe many aspects of life are too complicated and subtle to learn quickly, and that all older adults have learned and earned our reverence.
