Our Mission: The mission of the Norfolk Council on Aging is to identify and address the diverse needs of residents age 60 and older. The Senior Center provides a warm, welcoming place for people to stay connected and age well.  We strive to offer a wide variety of programs and services that enhance the quality of life, promote healthy aging and foster independence in our senior population.  We also serve as an advocate on issues that impact seniors and provide information and referrals to resources for seniors, their families and caregivers.
