Community Partnership on Aging
The Community Partnership on Aging (formerly known as Tri-City Consortium on Aging) was established in 1978 by the cities of South Euclid, Lyndhurst and Highland Heights. Its mission is to promote independence, a healthy lifestyle, community involvement and opportunities for personal growth to residents age 60 and older. Mayfield Hts. joined the Partnership in 2011 and Mayfield Village will begin using the services of CPA on May 1. Donna Heath can continue to be reached at the Mayfield Village Senior Services Office at 440.919.2332 for information relating to activities, programs, classes, and trips offered through Mayfield Village Senior Services. The following additional programs and services will be available to Village residents age 60 and over as of May 1st, 2012:
