Information and Assistance
TCOA’s Information and Assistance program is a service that provides elderly individuals with current information on opportunities and services available in the community. This service also assesses the problems and/or capacities of the individuals, and links them to opportunities that are available to them.
Our material aid program is designed to provide a limited supply of incontinent supplies and nutritional supplements. On occasion, when donated there could be fresh fruit and other items. Recreation
Everyone needs a little fun in their lives — no matter what age. That’s why we offer a variety of opportunities for elders to get together for socialization, recreation, and fun.
TCOA offers a variety of recreational activities at our senior centers throughout the parish.
Some of the activities offered include:
- Weekly Bingo

Whether it’s receiving flu shots, playing shuffle board, taking a ceramics class, or painting a picture, there are multiple activities available to enhance our elders’ mental and physical well-being. The key to wellness is staying active and taking steps to prevent illness.
