Welcome! Thank you for your continued support for St. Johns County seniors and caregivers. As always, the health and well-being of those we serve are at the heart of our mission, and they continue to guide and inform our decisions as we move forward. With the successful implementation of St. Johns County’s vaccination program, we have implemented a phased reopening plan for our in-person programs. To protect the health of our participants, we continue to require masks in all of our COA facilities and senior centers.
Here you will find detailed information on COA’s comprehensive array of services and programs for seniors and caregivers in St. Johns County. These services include home-delivered Meals on Wheels, case management, transportation services, adult day care, caregiver support, memory enhancement, lifelong learning, and so much more.
Our six senior centers are designed for adults who live in St. Johns County, enjoy staying active, being social, and living a healthy lifestyle. For detailed information for each center, please see individual locations in the menu above.
Our lifelong learning center in St. Augustine, River House, and our newest lifelong learning Center at Flagler Health+ Village at Nocatee offer in-person continuing education courses in fitness, art, dance, languages, and more.

Becky Yanni, COA Executive Director
The Council on Aging
One thing that might surprise you about the COA is that we are not here to tell you how to age. Because you can – and will - do that without any help from any of us. And, we’re not here to tell you what is best for you. Because you can decide that for yourself much better than we can. In fact, we’re not here to TELL you how to do anything at all! We are here for one simple reason and that is: to help.
If you are caring for your parents, concerned about your health, feeling a little lonely or looking for something fun to do, COA can help. If you need assistance with meals or some information about Alzheimer’s disease, dementia or adult day services, COA can help. Or maybe you’re looking for a place where your skills and talents can be put to good use? Guess what? COA can help!
Another fact that might surprise you is that the Council on Aging is not just for ‘old people!’ We have activities, services, programs and opportunities for children, parents, families, friends and neighbors. We’re fun and informative, creative and supportive, and possibly a lot more comprehensive than you might think. And while we – like you – are always willing to evolve, change and adapt, one thing is constant – we’re here for you. No matter who you are. So come on by and take a look. Because whatever it is you’re looking for, we can help. We’re here for you – we’re your COA!
Our COA main office is located at the Coastal Community Center, 180 Marine St., in downtown St. Augustine and there are additional community senior activity centers conveniently located throughout St. Johns County.
