The Department of Aging Advisory Council is a diverse group of individuals who represent the concerns of Cleveland seniors and adults with disabilities. The purposes of this council are:

  • To advise the Department of Aging regarding issues of importance to older persons and adults with disabilities in Cleveland
  • To provide input regarding programs and long term planning
  • To advocate on behalf of Cleveland's older persons and adults with disabilities

Most notably, the Council responds to consumer needs by helping to shape City policy. For example, the Council has made resolutions to increase funding for Adult Protective Services, Senior Block Grants, and Transportation for Seniors. 

Each City Council member recommends one nominee to represent their ward through attendance at quarterly Advisory Council meetings for a four-year term.
