COA Survey for Chatham Residents age 50+

  • August 11, 2020

Dear Council on Aging Friends,  

The Chatham Council on Aging is conducting a survey to inform our programming and outreach during the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond.  We currently provide programming available online and over the phone.  We want to hear your thoughts about our programming, what else you would like to see, what technology you have to access the programming, and how else you would like to stay connected.    

This survey is open to those age 50+ in Chatham.  Most of our programming serves people age 60+, but some programming serves those over 50 and we want this survey to be as inclusive as possible.    

Please share this survey link broadly!  Even if you have not yet participated in Council on Aging/Senior Center programming, please complete the survey so we know what seniors in Chatham want.   

You can take the survey online here    It should take 10-15 minutes.  

If you have questions or need assistance with this survey, please contact: Liz Lahti at (919) 542-4512 x 228 or 

Please take the survey by August 20th.  If you complete the survey and share your contact information, we will have a drawing and you might be the lucky one to receive 1 of 2 gift cards provided by a donor (each worth $25.)

It has never been easier to prepare a Health Care Power of Attorney and Living Will.

  • July 28, 2020

It has never been easier to prepare a Health Care Power of Attorney and Living Will. Through Friday, July 31st, documents may be prepared with a Notary Public without witnesses. Emergency laws make that possible, but time is short. 

Under ordinary circumstances, we recommend that adults--especially those at greater risk--share values and preferences, what they want and don't and whom they designate to speak for them if they cannot. Present circumstances are far from ordinary.
