Council on Aging

The Milton Council on Aging (“COA”) is a town department comprised of a nine-member board appointed by the Board of Selectmen. It was established in 1980 to respond to the needs of Milton’s seniors and to enhance their quality of life. Working together with the director, staff, and volunteers, the COA provides programs and services for residents 60 years and over. It also assists family members with information and referrals on elder issues. The Senior Center is a focal point in the community for information and activities. Ongoing interest groups include computers, knitting, cribbage, bridge, mahjong, trivia, and much more.  Health & Wellness classes include ZUMBA gold, strength training, dance exercise, arthritic exercise, yoga, tai chi, chair exercise and reflexology. All are welcome to visit and membership is not required to participate.
