Mission of the Department on Aging

The mission of the Geauga County Department on Aging is to support positive aging through programs, services, and resources that promote health, wellness, safety, independence and dignity.

Senior Trash Pick-Ups in September

In order to be placed on the clean-up list, you must first be registered with the Geauga County Department on Aging, be 60 years of age or older and live in the Village, Township or City hosting the pick-up.

The Department on Aging Employees, volunteers and local service departments will remove unwanted items from senior’s homes, saving seniors the time and effort of taking it themselves.

Russell Township

The Russell Township Trustees are joining forces with the Geauga County Department on Aging for the 2016 Russell Senior Trash Pick-Up Days September 21 and 22. Russell Township and the Department on Aging will pick up refuse from the seniors who need assistance. Please have items ready to be moved out the evening before the pickup. DO NOT leave items by curbside.

Cut off dates vary for each trash pick-up, so call early to register!

For general guidelines on each clean-up or to register, call the Department on Aging weekdays 8:00 AM – 4:30 PM at (440) 279-2129 or (440) or 279-2130.

Need a Ride to Your Medical Appointments?

Are you a senior citizen who lives in Geauga County? Do you have a doctor’s appointment that is outside of Geauga County and are looking for safe reliable transportation to get you to and from your medical appointment?

The Geauga County Department on Aging’s Escort Program offers transportation for Geauga County Seniors (age 60 and over) to their “out of county” medical appointments. We are able to transport seniors to the following counties: Ashtabula, Cuyahoga, Lake, Portage or Trumbull Counties for medical appointments. The program runs Monday through Friday and has wheelchair accessible vehicles, if needed.
