What We Do

The Rogue Valley Council of Governments (RVCOG) is a voluntary association of local jurisdictions in Jackson and Josephine counties. Through its Senior & Disability Services department, it assists seniors and adults with disabilities. As the Area Agency on Aging for this district, the RVCOG has developed a network of services to help seniors and adults with disabilities live with dignity and independence. A 11- member Disability Services Advisory Council and a 21-member Senior Advisory Council appointed by the RVCOG Board of Directors assist in planning and advocacy.

  • Those needing information about any program for seniors or adults with disabilities in our communities.
  • Those frail elderly and adults with disabilities least able to care for themselves.
  • Those likely to need more costly public service unless they receive immediate help.
  • Those needing some assistance because of economic and social factors.
  • Those caring for a family member.

Senior and Disability Services is guided by a federally-mandated Four-Year Area Plan. To see the 2021-2025 Area Plan:  Click Here
