How do I join the COA?

Does the van go out of Town?
Out of town shopping trips are listed inthe Senior Spirit, the COA newsletter.
What if I have a same day doctor’s appointment or need to refill my medicine?
We highly recommend that reservations be made as far in advance as possible for the van. However, medical appointments are a priority to our staff, and we will do our best to accommodate you and get you to your last minute appointment or the pharmacy.
Where is the Community Center located?
The COA is located in the Harvey Wheeler Community Center in West Concord at 1276 Main Street.
What if I need the wheelchair van?
The COA has a wheelchair accessible van. If an individual cannot propel their own chair to and from the van, they must have an escort to assist them. This is a curb to curb service. We ask that appointments for the wheelchair van be made a week or two in advance.
