Medina County Office for Older Adults The Medina County Office for Older Adults is dedicated to helping those over age sixty and their families by providing education regarding benefits and services available in Medina County and beyond. Our services are extensive and range from simply providing referrals to helping seniors enroll in eligible programs. Transportation Services Transportation can be an issue for seniors and those with disabilities. We work with Medina Transit and visit people in their homes to register them for in-county transit trips. Subsidized trips include those for medical appointments, groceries or social service agencies. Registration with MCOOA entitles each participant to free loop rides in the cities of Brunswick, Medina and Wadsworth. Home Delivered Meals For those who are homebound, outreach workers make visits to determine eligibility for home delivered meals. Six routes throughout the county serve more than 160 hot, nutritious, lunchtime meals at no charge. The Medina County Commissioners make these services possible with help from Title III funding provided by the Western Reserve Area Agency on Aging through the Ohio Department on Aging. Senior Centers and Services Medina County Office for Older Adults has one central senior center for programming throughout the county, located in Medina, and also coordinates senior services in Brunswick. Meal Programs, Entertainment & Activities We have meal programs in Medina, as well as a voucher program in Wadsworth and a congregate program in Brunswick. Our center is a fun place for seniors to gather with friends, new and old, and enjoy a tasty meal with good conversation.
