Coffee & Conversation

Join us for monthly meetups around the community! Grab a cup of coffee and learn more about the programs and services offered by the UA Commission, including the new UA Village. Find out about the resources that are available to you as you age in UA.

This is a free event but registration is requested.

File Of Life

The File of Life is a health information system that allows emergency personnel to respond more effectively when called to a resident’s home. The kit contains a medical data form which is inserted into a magnetized pouch and hung on your refrigerator.  Contact the Upper Arlington Commission on Aging to receive one by mail or stop by the Senior Center to pick one up.  The File of Life is made possible through a grant from the Upper Arlington Community Foundation and the Upper Arlington Rotary Club.

I Am Fine

“I Am Fine” is a computerized telephone check-in program that is customizable to meet your needs.  This service is suitable for both active seniors and those who live independently in their own homes.

This program is available to all UA residents as a free service of the Upper Arlington Commission on Aging.  Call us at (614) 583-5326 for questions or to enroll in the program.  You can also find answers to many questions on the FAQ page.

UA Village

UA Village, which is part of local and national networks, is an innovative and inclusive approach to aging in place. In addition to connecting older adults to services that help with things like maintenance and care, members of the Village program will also build connections through social and community events. 

According to the 2021 community assessment conducted by UACOA and Age-Friendly Columbus, Franklin County, and the ETC Institute, 81.3% of respondents indicated that it is very important to remain in their current homes as they age. More than 64% indicated that post-COVID they feel more isolated and desire  connection.*
