Office on Aging

The mission of Bamberg County Office on Aging is to contribute to the well-being and improve the quality of life for older adults in Bamberg County and to provide activities and services that promote independence and continuing participation in the community. With almost 30 vehicles for transportation, home-delivered and in-house meals, over 100 volunteers and a hard-working staff, the Bamberg County Office on Aging's main goal is to provide assistance and transportation for Bamberg County senior citizens and our entire community.

Housekeeping: Home Living Support Program provides light housekeeping to those in need.

 

Exercise: Exercise classes are available for any age on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 1 p.m. - 2 p.m. at the Rhoads' Senior Center.
