St. Bernard Council On Aging

     We seek to create an atmosphere that acknowledges the value of human life, individually and collectively, and affirms the dignity and self-worth of the older adult.  This atmosphere provides for the reaffirmation of creative potential, the power of decision making, the skills of coping and defending, and the warmth of caring, sharing, giving and supporting.

The uniqueness of the St. Bernard Council on Aging stems from its total concern for older people and its concern for the total older person.  In an atmosphere of wellness, it develops strengths and encourages independence, while building interdependence and supporting unavoidable dependencies     The Council operates two full service Senior Centers in Donaldsonville and Gonzales
