Helping older Adams County residents to maintain their independence and dignity.

Medicare 50 cake

The Adams County Office for Aging, Inc. (ACOFA) is a private non-profit agency dedicated to providing assistance to and advocacy for people age 60 and above within Adams County, PA. Our mission is to assist people in maintaining independence and dignity within their own homes and communities.

To accomplish our mission, we offer a variety of services within the community to support our age 60 and over population including; adult day care, senior centers, Lifeline systems, medical equipment loan, volunteer opportunities, tax preparation assistance, Medicare counseling, information about transportation, property tax and rent rebate assistance, protective services, legal services, and a variety of health and educational programs.


Services covering a wide range of needs are also provided in the home. These services include home health care such as personal care (providing assistance with bathing, dressing, grooming); home delivered meals; and other assistance which a care manager deems necessary to maintain an older person's health, safety and ability to remain in the home.

To receive services in the home, a care manager meets with the client in their home to determine their needs. Caregivers and family members may also be present. The care manager then develops a care plan for the individual to coordinate a variety of services.

To reach us, you can stop by our office located at 318 West Middle Street in Historic Gettysburg, PA 17325 during normal office hours which are Monday thru Friday from 8:00 AM to 4:30 PM.
