What is The Katie?
The Katie’s full name is The Katie Dusenberry Healthy Aging Center. Pima Council on Aging operates a physical center located at 600 S. Country Club Road in Tucson and a virtual center website at TheKatie.org to help our community age well.
At TheKatie.org, explore videos about various topics, including understanding Medicare, scams and fraud, simple exercises you can do safely at home, technology education, and much more.
Visit TheKatie.org to sign up for remote or in-person evidenced-based exercise classes designed for older adults, fall prevention workshops, assistance navigating Medicare, and a host of other opportunities for older adults to learn and engage.
Connect with people and places around the world through Virtual Experiences, where you can take a virtual museum tour or chat with others while enjoying a live stream of pandas playing or tropical fish swimming in a reef.
There’s something for everyone at The Katie! The Katie is named for Katie Dusenberry, a long-time friend and supporter, former PCOA Board Chair, and national advocate for aging issues.
Since 1967, PCOA has led the way to improve the experience of aging for the communities of Pima County, Arizona. Providing expert services, advocacy, and unbiased information for older people and their families is at the heart of our work.
PCOA is a nonprofit organization dedicated to inclusive, innovative, and integrated services that meet the changing needs of Pima County’s older adults. This work is only possible with the support of our funders, donors, and volunteers.
PCOA helps our community age well through a network of programs and services, provided directly by our knowledgeable staff and volunteers, or offered through agreements with community partners.
In everything we do, we advocate for the rights and needs of older adults. We provide resources and information to help you make informed choices and find solutions that are right for you. And we offer education and services to help you live an independent, vibrant life.
PCOA services are offered by appointment or registration. Visit our calendar to learn about everything PCOA has to offer.
