About

Seniors are an important part of the Oakland County community. Oakland County Executive L. Brooks Patterson formed the Oakland County Senior Advisory Council (SAC) to ensure Oakland County is a place where seniors have a high quality of life enriched by volunteering and other activities. SAC consists of 25 members, one from each Commissioner district and four members-at-large with special expertise. The group meets monthly.
 
As part of our strategic plan, yearly goals include providing resources and opportunities to Oakland County’s growing senior population. Accomplishments include a workshop for senior center coordinators & staff, where community partners were available to answer questions and promote services. In partnership with the Area Agency on Aging 1-B, SAC provides information for older adults and caregivers in the ACCESS quarterly newsletter.
