IMMEDIATE RELEASE

COUNCIL ON AGING FACING CHALLENGES DUE TO HURRICANE IRMA

Daytona Beach, FL – Council on Aging’s main administrative office on Beach Street has sustained extensive damage due to water intrusion. This has rendered our main office uninhabitable. The 39 staff members housed in that office will be relocated to multiple temporary locations until a more permanent solution is found.

Throughout the storm, Council on Aging staff continued to provide the most critical of services to those seniors we serve. Grant clients, our most vulnerable population, were all contacted by their case managers prior to and after the storm to insure that they had what they needed. Meals on Wheels for homebound seniors resumed on Friday September 15, 2017 from makeshift locations across the county. Congregate diners who rely on us for their noon meal will have those meals resumed at authorized locations today, Monday, September, 18, 2017.

Recreational activities at various senior center locations will resume as buildings are cleared for use and as both activities staff and main office staff to support them comes back online.

Council on Aging continues to fulfill its mission of serving the needs of seniors.
