Lake County Council on Aging

The Lake County Council on Aging provides care and service for older adults. This agency is dedicated to supporting those adults feeling isolated, living alone, and in need of some type of assistance to their independence. The Gatekeeper Program has been designed by community volunteers to watch and listen for the signs that indicate an elderly person is in need of assistance. Once a referral is received, it is reviewed by a nurse and a social worker who discuss the action to be taken. A referral is then made to other resources in the community. If the plan is accepted by the elder, ongoing case management is received and followed for a minimum of three months.

If you know of an elder who needs assistance or if you would like to become a Gatekeeper, contact the Lake County Council on Aging at (440) 205-8111.

Renting Rooms at the Community-Senior Center

Rooms at the Wickliffe Community Center can be rented for a minimum of two hours for $30 per hour on Fridays from 5 pm to 9 pm and Saturdays/Sundays from noon to 10 pm. Contact the Wickliffe Recreation Department at (440) 943-7120 for complete details.  Rental Room Guidelines & Rates
