TCOA was founded in 1974 as the Area Agency on Aging by Clinton, Eaton, and Ingham counties and the cities of Lansing and East Lansing. Working in partnership with agencies and service providers across the area, TCOA embraces a person- centered philosophy that focuses on how a person wants to live their life while honoring their preferences.
Our mission is to promote and preserve the independence and dignity of the aging population. TCOA helps older adults access programs and benefits, improve their health, and remain active in their communities. We offer several programs and services such as Meals on Wheels, health and wellness classes, caregiver supports, and general information and assistance.
