The East Baton Rouge Council on Aging is mandated by the Older Americans Act (OAA), to respond to the needs of Americans aged 60 and over in the local community with the goal of keeping seniors living independently in their own homes. Senior Centers are an excellent way to break social isolation by engaging seniors with their community, in a safe and enriching environment.
