Aging is a process each of us faces, yet no two of us will age in exactly the same way.  The changes we experience often occur against a backdrop of cultural shifts, technology improvements and medical advances.

Council on Aging monitors trends, takes out what is relevant to older adults and identifies appropriate responses, best practices or gaps that may need to be addressed.  By actively listening to the preferences and concerns of aging adults in this community, efforts are prioritized and attention focused on issues that matter most in Charlotte-Mecklenburg.  Council on Aging works with local government, decision makers, other agencies, activists and individuals – stakeholders for whom the outcomes really matter.

Through these efforts, Council on Aging is able to create education programs to inform and empower aging adults, people who care for aging adults, service providers and community leaders.  Most programs are collaborations with other agencies, organizations and companies in the community.  Guest speakers and panelists are selected to provide participants with the most current information available on a specific topic.

If you or your organization would like to host an education program  or if you have a topic about which you want to learn more, please contact Katie Kutcher, Education Program Manager,, 704-391-5216, Ext. 204 or .

For list of programs currently available through Council on Aging as well as those offered by other agencies and organizations, please visit our Calendar.
