Aging Ahead created CHOICE in 2014 as a solution to the ongoing challenge of attracting older adults to senior centers. CHOICE brings a variety of programs and services to community locations where older adults naturally congregate, such as libraries.   As a result, more people are accessing information and resources that enable them to live in their homes and communities for as long as possible.


While there are many opportunities for older adults to learn, socialize and enjoy healthy meals in our community, the added value brought by Aging Ahead’s staff makes CHOICE unique. Aging Ahead staff members are familiar with the variety of interests, needs and challenges of older adults and they are skilled at identifying resources that help individuals to age well in the community.

Not a CHOICE member, no problem. Sign up today, it’s FREE!
